Townhead Medical Practice has an active interest in medical education. We are involved in the teaching of qualified doctors who wish to become general practitioners, undergraduate medical students training to becoming doctors, and student nurses. They may spend time with our Doctors, Practice Nurses, District Nurses, and Health Visiting teams.
GP Specialty trainees - Doctors who wish to become General Practitioners have to undertake 18 months training in an approved practice in addition to their hospital posts.
Medical students - Senior medical students from the University of Dundee, and occasionally other medical schools, gain valuable experience of General Practice at Townhead.
Nursing students - Nursing students from The School of Nursing and Midwifery in Dundee are taught at Townhead.
Video sessions - Teaching consultation skills is an important part of training in General Practice. Video consultations are a useful part of this process. You will always be asked for your consent before these consultations, and particular care is taken with regard to confidentiality.
We are very grateful for your help, but if you wish to see the doctor alone please do say at the start of your appointment.
