Training at the Castle Medical Centre Kenilworth
The Castle Medical Centre is a 5 partner Practice with around 12,200 patients.
We have trained Medical Students and GP registrars for around 30 years. As a practice we are enthusiastic and committed towards providing first class training for the next generation of general practitioners. We enjoy our commitment to our patients and in encouraging our learner doctors to have a similar degree of passion and care.
We have been taking medical students from Warwick Medical School since it's opening in 2003. Prior to that we used to take them from Birmingham Med school.
Karen Appleyard, Clare Stoddart and Mindy Atwal are the lead GPs for the med students supporting them in their assessments and observing them in their patient consultations.
GP registrars (or specialist trainees, STRs as they are now called) are looked after by the 2 GP trainers, David Spraggett and Dr Stoddart. The practice trained GPs in the old days of summative assessment and has successfully made the transition to the new entry level into General Practice, I.e. The MRCGP, especially understanding the concept of workplace based assessment and the eportfolio which quite a lot of trainees struggle with.
Trainee GPs have their own consulting room, a designated trainer plus shared tutorials. They have a protected learning afternoon each week usually on Fridays.
We like having Medical Students and Specialist GP trainees in our practice. Our patients are used to having them in the practice and value their keen attitudes. As experienced GPs, we like to be able to pass our knowledge to them but also learn from them in turn.
If you are interested in training at our practice, please ask to speak to one of the GP partners mentioned above or one of our Practice Managers.
