Join Newcastle in training the next generation of doctors

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.

That's why this year we are launching the 'Reach and Teach campaign to get even more practices teaching with us to inspire the next generation of GP's.

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. For the current GP lecturers and the areas they cover, see the GP Lecturers List (PDF, 71KB).

We are always interested to hear from any GPs who are thinking of joining our team. Please contact Kym Merritt, GP Recruitment Lead, or your local GP lecturer for an informal discussion and more information.
