RCGP meets with medical school heads to discuss 'toxic anti-GP' culture in universities


‘Evidence suggests that when students go into medical school, they are very positive about general practice, and when they come out of the other end, they are not. So what is going on?’ What tosh. What is going on indeed. Maureen puts that down to the fault of the medical school? toxic culture? The current working environment is so bad that it filters down to the students, however you try and dress it up. Still missing the point, which is, make the working environment more attractive, they want to be GPs, not try and teach, maybe even 'lie' to them about it. If they have unrealistic expectations of what it is like in real life, then how do you expect to RETAIN them? Can't be sheer incompetence that RCGP are missing the point, can it? or a deliberate attempt to deflect from the real issues? or maybe just doing what they think they can, with no real power or desire to challenge the real life working environment
