Work Experience and Study Placements

What we offer

As well as being a GP training practice we also actively support work experience and study placement opportunities. Providing opportunities for learning and support for those exploring an interest in working in primary care or gaining practical experience for those who are already studying are central to our core learning value.

We work with the Somerset Clinical Education Provider Network,  the University of West England, the Open University and Health Education England  to provide work experience for those who are on a Nursing career path. This includes supporting the Trainee Nurse Associate Programme.

We have also worked with the Centre for Sustainable Health and the University of Bristol to provide Medical Student Placements.

We also welcome applications from those studying Health and Social Care T levels who need a regular weekly placement. 

We also offer an Aspiring Medics programme at the practice, which is aimed at young people who are considering a career in medicine / healthcare and gives them the opportunity to spend a week observing in detail the complex workings of a modern general practice in action.
