Do we need more men in general practice?


The selection process for GP Training is heavily biased against men. It values the softer skills and also doesn't take into account that even aged 26 men still have a considerable amount of maturation to do to catch up with women. I have been running a GP Training programme for over 20 years and can vouch for the fact that the playing field is much more level by the time they reach 30.
