GP Training

If you are thinking of GP Training in this area get more info on our local training scheme from which has blog pages from current Registrars and samples of what a training rotation might look like.

In our practice Drs Sharon Hamilton and Julie McIlwaine share the trainer role and take Registrars for six months or one year attachments. Dr Al Miles is a Clinical Tutor with Aberdeen University and we have medical students here on one month placements at various times throughout the year.

We have a strong tradition of involvement in Postgraduate and Undergraduate education, having been a training practice continuously since 1970.  Our GP Registrars have quickly become fully integrated into the practice team, and we have aimed to produce an environment where they have the time and resources to learn the clinical and organisational skills of general practice as well as being supported in their various assessments.

We hold weekly educational meetings within the practice and nursing and administrative staff attend appropriate educational courses in addition to in-house training. Medical staff meet daily for 20 minutes at 10.45am. There are several Protected Learning Time (PLT) afternoon meetings per year, with locality meetings in Aviemore offering a range of topics, alternating with in-house meetings.
