The opportunity to teach medical students was one of the main things that attracted me to a job at Pioneer Medical. This year I'm teaching 1st year medical students in practice. It really adds variety to the week and they bring a fresh perspective to my work. Patients seem to love having the students visit them at home.

Dr Polly Duncan, Bristol GP

They keep me on my toes clinically and never cease to fill me with optimism about the future of the profession amidst all the negativity. It's quality time discussing clinical issues with fellow professionals who haven't had time to get as cynical as me and my peers yet! How very refreshing and energising.

Dr Andrew Eaton, Somerset GP
