Independent placements in GP (years 4 and 5)
Independent placements are student self-arranged attachments in general practice. These run for four weeks in academic year four. GPs are asked to provide placements for one (or more) of the seven rotation dates per year. Details for GPs about independent placements are available in the one page guide below. Please note that all GPs are asked to attend one of our 40 minute placement preparation meeting (midweek lunchtime or evening via Zoom). [nb. Students can find their independent placement FAQs (including advice on how to contact/approach GP surgeries) on Student Central]. Students in their fifth year of studies (i.e. intercalators in year 4) can claim the NHS practice placement expenses bursary here. Please then click on the PDF for the current year.
