Training at the Surgery

HymsThe Hull York Medical School is a partnership between the Universities of Hull and York. HYMS took its first batch of students in 2003 with its first graduates in 2008. HYMS is not the first medical school at either city. Both cities had schools in the nineteenth century, but neither of them survived the changes wrought by the Medical Acts and the foundation of the General Medical Council in 1858.

The HYMS course is unusual in that 50% of clinical attachments are in community with General Practice playing a signifant role. The surgery is involved with teaching both Year 4 & 5 students. Dr Heaton & Dr. Fitzsimons are the lead tutors for HYMS at the practice. The assistance many of our patients provide in allowing students to both take histories and perform examinations on them is appreciated.

 

The surgery has regular placements of junior doctors who are undergoing part of their training at the surgery. These are fully qualified doctors who whilst working with us form an integral part of the practice. These doctors perform many of the same duties as the regular doctors who work at the surgery. At times their consultations are videotaped for training purposes following your prior consent. Your co-operation in seeing them is appreciated.

Registrars/Specialist Trainees

These are doctors who will work at the practice for between 6 and 12 months. They are intending to follow a career in General Practice. Dr French & Dr Blackbourn are their Trainers. Currently we take up to 3 of these doctors.

Foundation Year 2 Doctors

These are doctors who are in their second year post graduation. The FY2 year is a compulsory training period all doctors must follow after graduation. Many of these doctors spend 4 months in General Practice during this year. These doctors however may not necessarily be intending to follow a career in General Practice. Dr Wheatley is their lead trainer at the practice.
