We are a training practice with medical students, nursing students, GP Registrars and Foundation Year 2 doctors. We are dedicated to ensuring that new doctors/students who come to the surgery for training in general practice receive the best training they can. Registrars are attached to the practice for 6 to 12 months and patients find their fresh, enthusiastic approach adds to the healthcare we provide. All trainees are encouraged to seek advice from the other doctors at all times. Sometimes patients may be asked if they are willing to participate in teaching sessions. The trainees may from time to time sit in with one of the other doctors. We will always check that you have no objection to this and should you prefer that he/she is not there, this will be respected.
Teaching is an important part of the culture at Parchmore Medical Centre and we are very pleased to be a training practice. The trainers at the practice are Dr A T Fernandes and Dr M Rafique. There is protected tutorial time with the trainer. The teaching is directed by the trainer and shared by all the partners, practice manager and primary care team.
GP Speciality Trainees and Foundation Year 2 Doctors
Teaching is an important part of the culture at Parchmore Medical Centre and we are very pleased to be a training practice. GP Speciality Trainees are fully qualified doctors undergoing specialist training to become GP’s. The trainers at the practice are Dr A T Fernandes and Dr M Rafique. Foundation Year 2 trainees are fully qualified doctors who are on rotation with hospital posts with Dr S Shaikh or Dr P Selestine as their Clinical Supervisor during their general practice attachment.
We are strongly committed to teaching medical students from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Hospital and St George’s Medical School. The students come to us at all stages of their medical training and sometimes patients are invited to participate in their learning. This provides invaluable experience for the students.
We greatly appreciate the help and co-operation you give them. If a medical student is sitting in with the doctor you will be informed. You may of course ask to be seen alone.
On some occasions the student will conduct some consultations without the doctor being present. However, at these times, the student will always refer back to the supervising doctor.
