Why Choose a GP Training Course?

A company called Doctors.net claims that it is possible that as many as 42 percent of GPs in the United Kingdom will retire over the next 10 years. As this means more people are being trained to replace these retiring GPs, it's important to know what responsibilities and duties you'll be taking on once you graduate.  

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) says that the average GP can expect to spend up to 90 percent of their time on medical duties, while only 20 percent is spent trying to maximize profits through direct sales or extra treatments. This shows just how much work a doctor has! If "wellness" isn't your thing, then why would you want to work as a GP?

To "qualify" for the role of a GP, you'll need to complete a nine-month diploma in general practice at your local university. This course is then followed by another three months of supervised experience working as an intern at a hospital or clinic. Once qualified, you'll be able to sit the General Practice Certificate Examination and pass it with around a 65 percent mark.
