A wide range of teaching strategies are employed by the Discipline in order to provide the broad and well-rounded skills required for general practice. These include:
- Attachment with GP tutors/group practices.
- Fixed resource sessions (FRS).
- Tutorials /Problem based tutorials.
- Small group work.
- Projects and reports
- GP Club
- Rural Health Club
The main method of teaching is through clinical exposure. The curriculum at Newcastle has moved away from the traditional model of pre-clinical and clinical years and encourages integrated learning with early contact with patients.
With regard to general practice, this begins in the 1st year with sessions in General Practice, and the student is attached to a GP tutor in years three and five as well.
