Medical students at Oxford University still deterred from GP career, finds study


Agree with utter fool,why the interest in Oxford? The issue is the ability to see patients in clinical practice,large numbers of patients,very very large numbers. I suspect if you picked any area of medicine e.g. surgery or diabetes these graduates would be in the labs and the libraries not the wards and the theatres. No-one ask how many living rooms the winner of the Turner prize has decorated. When was the last time you bought a CD by the local professor of music. In almost all walks of life the difference between academia and practice is acknowledged. However,British GP training has never been able to get it's head around this,hence the relentless destruction of GP.
