Prof Alex Harding
Co-presenter: Innovations in undergraduate education
The need for new approaches to undergraduate teaching in general practice was brought starkly into focus by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. We will present a range of novel educational resources developed collaboratively by SAPC Heads of GP Teaching (HoTs), in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Medical Schools Council, in order to support medical students’ learning in general practice.
