Our new medical school offers hope for both present and future GPs


This article does not make any comment about the experience level of the GPs providing teaching - I can't see any mention of 'young' GPs here. In addition, the intention to provide exposure to General Practice from Year 1 does not necessarily equate to a dilution of teaching in the traditional biomedical sciences. Such exposure could mean only a few days each term visiting a GP practice and in the form of GP-led tutorials at the medical school. This was my experience at KCL medical school. Indeed, both criticisms may well be valid but this is speculation. There is insufficient information in this article to denigrate the medical school's curriculum.
