Clinical Teaching and Training

We have medical students from University of Exeter Medical School training with doctors periodically and we are a GP training practice with two GP trainers. We also have nursing and paramedic students. All patients will be asked at consultation if they mind having a student present.

Non Clinical Staff Training

The practice supports vocational training of non clinical staff. Several members of staff hold NVQs in Customer Service, Business Administration, Dispensing Services or Management. The practice was awarded the Education and Training Skills' Employer of the Year Award in 2018 in recognition of its commitment to non-clinical staff training.
