GPST1s welcomed to Grampian Programme
The trainees started with 'getting to know you' Bingo, disappointingly no-one quite got a full house but Hannah filled the most squares and seemed please with her winning prize of a box of Maltesers!
The day continued with lots of discussion about the training programme and opportunities for learning. Dr Vicki Guthrie then gave a snappy presentation on the pitfalls of social media in the PechaKucha style.
Coffee time included some home baking and this was then followed by a small group work covering the many 3 (and more) letter acronyms associated with GP training. A delicious lunch was provided by the local RCGP faculty and then the small group discussion continued.
The day seems to have gone really well with lots of positive feedback.
"Interesting and thorough summary of what to expect in the next 3 years, especially regarding e-portfolio"
"Informal, tutors were very approachable and friendly"
"Relaxed friendly, enthusiastic speakers"
"Helpful to see the e-portfolio, go over mandatory components the curriculum and competencies"
"Found it very beneficial to hear from GPST3 with regards to hints/tips for training"
"Chatting and getting to know other GPSTs"
"Really enjoyed meeting everyone and good having the chance to chat and get to know a bit about the other trainees and members of team leading the training programme"
