"Realistic Medicine, Realistic Training"

Educational Supervisors from across the North Region of the Scottish Deanery from Lossiemouth to Lerwick, Stonehaven to Stornaway and Forres to Fort William gathered in Nairn last week for dynamic two day conference "Realistic Medicine, Realistic Training".

The conference, which always has an excellent attendance, is an opportunity for ESs across the region to share learning and experiences, to help them develop as educators and to enable them to offer the best support and training they can to GPSTs across the North region.

We were delighted to welcome the Chair of RCGP Scotland, Dr Carey Lunan, as our key note speaker discussing "Realistic General Practice: politics, conflicts and opportunities" and also had an opportunity to hear from Dr Des Spence about " A new Future in Primary Care: a solution to the crisis"

ESs met with the new Director of GP Education for the East, Dr Amjad Khan and attended a wide variety of different workshops run by both their colleagues and external speakers.

We are looking forward to reviewing the feedback and starting the planning for the conference next year.
