Headline

RCGP chair: ‘Blatant bigotry’ against general practice in medical schools

Comment

Echoing multiple previous similar comments, but deterrence doesn't come from medical school - most don't make career choices until FY1/FY2, where the thought of 4 years of terrible service provision trainee jobs, combined with an arduous, meaningless portfolio, second-mortgage inducing exam costs and your daily email from Maureen Baker providing me with learning log entries as a study in delusional beliefs, it's all justifiably unappealing. If I paid 9K a year to a university, as current students do, I would have a serious issue with them providing inaccurate career advice (ie. do General Practice! It'll all be great! Enjoy signing skydiving waivers!) PS. Anon 10:44 - is avoid like the plaque the modern day, atherosclerotic equivalent to avoid like the plague? Had to double check it wasn't just Pulse's new font that made me misread.
