Report of 2018 national survey UK Heads of GP teaching

Many thanks to Emily Cottrell, Hugh Alberti and Trevor Thompson who have now prepared a report on  our 2018 national survey of all UK Heads of GP teaching.

We are very grateful to them for all their efforts.

This was a cross-sectional questionnaire study which aimed to:

  • Quantify the exposure of undergraduate medical students in the UK to general practice and to compare this to historical data
  • Describe the financial and human resources allocated to support GP teaching
  • Describe, and quantify, the initiatives in medical schools based on By Choice – Not by Chance recommendation
