Every on in the Department of Primary Care & Public Health at Imperial College London was very pleased to learn that one of our academic general practitioners, Dr Ho Harris, has been appointed as Deputy Head of Undergraduate Medicine at Imperial College London, Dr Harris comments on her new role.

"I am delighted to share with you my new appointment as Deputy Head of Undergraduate Medicine at Imperial College London. It is the first time that a General Practitioner has been appointed to a senior role in the school and shows that the medical school is committed to training future doctors in the speciality of Primary Care. Imperial College is keen to ensure our students are not only academically excellent but also well versed as generalists. In this role, it is exciting to have an overview of the whole six years of the course as well as start to think how our students could be better taught in the future.

As the way medicine is practised changes with GPs seeing more complex cases…
