Become a GP Teacher

Join Newcastle in training the next generation of doctors.

Teaching Opportunities

Newcastle Medical School already work with over 200 GP practices across the region who play a key role in delivering the MBBS programme. But with our new curriculum and increasing student numbers, there are now even more opportunities to teach right across the course.

We provide GP teachers with a full programme of education and development and support them through our team of GP lecturers. These are experienced local GPs who oversee teaching across the region.

We are always interested to hear from any GPs who are thinking of joining our team. For more information on teaching opportunities and remuneration download the guide to Teaching programme 2024-2025
