Welcome to the teaching part of the website for current and prospective GP tutors.
GPs who get involved in training "Tomorrow's doctors" often find the experience rewarding and inspiring. There are a number of opportunities for those GPs interested in teaching on a sessional basis. You will also find here information on the standards for undergraduate teaching that we expect existing and new GP tutors to work to and the role of clinical academies.
In recognition of our GP Teachers’ commitment to undergraduate teaching we offer the Honorary Clinical Teacher Scheme.
This honorary position entitles the holder to a Bristol University email address and access to all of the University’s library facilities, including e-journals, and staff and sporting facilities (fees apply). There is a certificate for display in GPs’ surgeries and of course the kudos of official University recognition. This may be useful for GPs’ appraisal folders.
Honorary status implies that the person is undertaking a regular minimum teaching commitment and complying with all eligibility criteria. Please take a look at the Minimum Eligibility Criteria to see whether you meet the minimum criteria.
If you are interested in this scheme please look out for your invitation to apply at the end of the year. The deadline for applications is 31st December.
GP Teachers will be approved as Honorary Clinical Teachers for three years and can apply for an extension at the end of that period. If you have any queries please contact the Primary Care Teaching Office.
