SPECIALIST TRAINEE GP (ST2)
Posted on 11 Mar 2022
We are pleased to announce that from 7 August 2019 the Practice will be introducing SPECIALIST TRAINEE GPs (ST2/ST3)
Doctors wishing to become GPs need to undergo specialist training in General Practice.
ST2/3’s are fully qualified Doctors and will have completed a couple of years training in hospital jobs (known as Foundation trainees, the new name for house officers and senior house officers) before starting on a GP training scheme which lasts a minimum of 3 years.
A GPST 2 is in the 2nd year of their specialist training. They will be known as GP Registrars. They are qualified doctors but will need supervision in the form of advice and guidance from Dr Armitage and the Partners just as trainees in hospital get the same support from Consultants and senior doctors
