Hello, Thank you for your interest in a GP society! Exeter GP Society has been developed to connect medical undergraduates to the GP (general practice) speciality. It can feel very overwhelming trying to work out what you want to do in your medical career, let alone actually getting there through passing medical school exams first. Our society is designed to teach undergraduates more about the opportunities a career in GP can offer. Through connecting undergraduates with passionate GPs, we can show undergraduates the variety of roles and experiences a portfolio career in GP can offer. We want to diminish the negative stigma that can sometimes be attached to GP as the easy/ boring option- it definitely isn’t! We hope that undergraduates will feel better informed and equipped to make career choices and feel excited and inspired about GP as a potential career and all the opportunities it can offer.
Simultaneously, we want to support medical undergraduates through providing near-peer and extra-curricular teaching sessions from a range of healthcare professionals: from FY1 through to GPs to provide extra support in both the knowledge and skills they will be tested on throughout medical school.
Membership is completely FREE!
