Among the highlights of the day were presentations from undergraduate students about their experience of their general practice placements. The students - who included Chee Yang Chen, Abdulrahman El-Hilly, Anna Humphreys, David Zargaran, Sarah Hardwick, Mantej Sehmblin, Dishad Sachedina, Maria Adelson, and Bhavesh Patel - all spoke very positively about their experiences and highlighted the value of teaching in primary care settings.
Other highlights of the day included presentations from Professor Sir Brian Jarman and Professor Jenny Higham; and the presentation of our Annual GP Student and Teacher Awards. The day also included a number of workshops on a wide range of topics, including ethics, patient-centredness, primary care research, team-based learning and e-learning. The programme for the day can be viewed here.
Feedback from the GPs who attended the conference was very positive. Days like this help reinforce the value that Imperial College places on its primary care teaching and will help in developing our strategic vision for undergraduate teaching. Many thanks to all who helped organise the day and contributed to the workshops, and those who attended the conference.
