It's a wonderful life! Aberdeen medical students enabled to shadow Grampian GPSTs

I was delighted to help run the GP Trainee Shadowing Pilot this year for our second year medical students. The students came out to a variety of practices in their own time to undertake a half day shadowing a GP trainee here in Grampian.

The feedback from our students was really positive and they really appreciated the opportunity to gain some hands on experience, learn from near-peers and get a taster of real life GP! These positive early experiences in medical school really do make a difference and will hopefully help to promote general practice as a speciality.

It was amazing to see so many of our GP trainees ready to help and get involved and they really enjoyed the chance to build on their teaching and mentoring skills. A really exciting time for both the postgraduate GP training team and undergraduate University of Aberdeen community medical education teams and a great opportunity to work together!
