General Practice involves seeing a full spectrum of patients and presentations. GPs need to be comfortable managing presentations from every specialty area, and patients of every age group and demographic. Many GPs identify this diversity as one of the reasons they enjoy their work. As a Junior Doctor considering a career in General Practice, or as a GP Registrar, this diversity can be daunting or overwhelming. To inform and inspire those who are considering a career in General Practice, onthewards is launching the GP Curriculum.
To begin, Dr Isabel Hanson has curated a list of existing onthewards content which will help Junior Doctors about to start on their General Practice journey. We hope that by reviewing these seven important topics listed below, Junior Doctors will have an increased confidence in their ability to manage these presentations (particularly if it is one of their first few times managing these issues).
In the next few months, we will launch more General Practice content, with the aim of informing and inspiring Junior Doctors who would like to know more about becoming a GP. We will be covering clinical content on common General Practice presentations, as well as career perspectives about the experience of being a GP.
Please contact us at onthewards if you have specific content you would like to know more about – we love to hear your suggestions and questions.
