Prizes for GPs
In addition to prizes for students, students are asked to nominate prizes for GP teachers. These GP teachers teach students in their practice across the South West. These GPs invest a lot of time and enthusiasm in their teaching and we want to reward them for this. Therefore each year we give 6 awards to our GP teachers. There is an award for the best teacher of each year as well as the best supervisor of an external student selected component (SSC). Students are asked to nominate GPs by completing a brief online survey which we make available each year. The recipient of each award will be the GP with the most positive student nominations.
