Both surgeries are Training Practices. This means we have qualified Doctors who are training towards careers in General Practice. For full time trainees this means a 6 to 12 month post before moving to another training practice or qualifying as an independent GP.
We appreciate your feedback on how they are doing, what they do well and what could be improved.
We also arrange feedback forms during the trainee placements that allow patients to confidentially provide feedback on how they are consulting, which forms an important part of their training.
Pages for the trainees are accessible with a password given to trainees.
The Roadmap of the final year is not password-protected, so that the work we put into training a General Practitioner of the future is visible to anyone who takes an interest!

Medical Student Training
Both surgeries train medical students from the University of Birmingham. At the time of writing we currently train final year students who come for 5-week placements, learning how to consult with patients and plan their care.
Consultations with final year medical students are usually 30-minute slots, with a review by one of the doctors responsible for training to decide the appropriate treatment. Again we appreciate your feedback on them. We usually have 4 to 6 students per year.
In the future we will also be training students from earlier years in their studies, to introduce them to medical practice and long term care in the community.
Medical Students: Your first day at the surgeries will probably be at Tandon Medical Centre, starting at 9am with Dr Hynes. Please see the link for direction on how to get to the car park at TMC. Many a medical student and new Dr have gotten lost trying to find the car park!
