Kings Medical Centre has been a GP training practice for many years starting around 1975. We are accredited both by Health Education North Central and East London (formerly the London Deanery) and Health Education East of England (formerly East of England Deanery). Two of our partners are local VTS graduates.
Dr Lasker is a GP trainer having taken the Teaching the Teachers course in 2009.
Dr Rebel is a GP trainer and took a PGCE in Health Education completing in June 2014.
Dr Tranmer is a GP Associate Trainer with Health Education East of England.
We believe GP training is a whole practice activity and responsibility. Our trainees learn a great deal from the wider clinical and administrative staff as well as the GPs. Therefore we regularly include all the practice staff in teaching from clinical to administrative subjects and run a lively programme of in house education in our library room.
We currently have individual trainer / trainee joint surgery and tutorial time as well as more group tutorial time – this is extremely useful coming up to the CSA exam. In addition the trainees are invited to the majority of the Monday / Thursday lunchtime practice meetings, getting you involved in the everyday running of the practice. Whilst with us you would have the opportunity to be involved in teaching both final year and first year medical students. We have started to run a mock CSA surgery with staff taking the leading acting roles.
Our trainees have their own consulting rooms for the duration of their time with us. We have reasonable off-street parking both on Kings Avenue (5 spaces) and Palmerston Road (9 spaces). We aim to have a family feel and include the trainees in as much of what goes on as possible, both work wise and socially. The regular events are a summer BBQ and Christmas drop in lunch and evening out.
