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


This quote "Putting students into general practices from year one and involving working GPs in delivering campus-based teaching will help to achieve this, as there is nothing like a bit of role-modelling to stir the imagination" could have come straight from the prospectus of Southampton Medical School circa 1974. 50/50 split male/female, older studenets encouraged and GP lectures, with attendances in GP Surgeries from the start. How did it turn out? About 50% went into GP, including me, not far from the average of the older medical schools. So Dr Tisi you may not get what you are trying to design into your new Med school. Give the students the facts, let them decide. Keep your mucky, manipulative, mitts off.
