Up to 20 students will be able to undertake the Primary Care Academy method of learning.
Your third, spent in the Primary Care Academy, will replace the traditional model of speciality attachments.
While the learning outcomes remain the same you have the whole year in which to achieve them. This will be possible via negotiated learning opportunities (NLOs) with a mixture of time spent in general practice, community care and secondary care.
Whilst approximately 60 – 70% of your time is expected to be in primary care, you will also have the opportunity to explore hospital or community based activities based on your own identified learning needs and areas of interest. Students will be allocated to general practices in West Wales, as individuals or in pairs, and we will aim for groups of students to be geographically co-located.
Expressions of interest are invited from all year 2 students and preference will be given to those students who are able to demonstrate self-motivation and an ability to undertake self-directed learning.
