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


Doctor McDoctor Face | GP Partner/Principal13 Jul 2018 4:38pm I’m sorry Doctor McDoctor Face, the fact your son is graduating from Oxford makes diddly squat difference to the fact that going to oxford has absolutely nothing to do with the ability to be a good GP - nothing. A Dr from Oxford is no more likly to be an able GP than one from Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester or London. If you can’t see that singling out the university of Oxford as some kind of ‘special case’ isn’t both odd and offensive to everyone else then your either a fool , blinded by parental love or both. And why is it they Oxford students are so averse to general practice , can you explain that please , forgive me for infering a degree of ‘priggary’ but I think that’s as good a guess as any, your son obviously excluded.
