General Practice Trainees and Medical Students

The Practice may from time to time have a GP Trainee. The GP Trainee is a fully qualified Doctor who spends a year gaining experience in General Practice.

Occasionally we have medical students from Dundee University attached to the practice. The students are gaining experience under the direction of one of the Doctors in the Practice.

If a student is with us, the Receptionist will make you aware of this on your arrival at the Health Centre. If you have any objections to the student being present during your consultation, please mention this to the Doctor or Receptionist. The student will only be present during your consultation if you are happy with this arrangement.
