GPST Induction

GPST inductionDon't Panic....

If you have just joined the scheme you will meet all the team and have an opportunity to find out about GP training at our induction events. One thing you must do as soon as possible is to Register with the RCGP

Prior to you starting in General Practice, your Practice Manager will arrange for you to meet your Trainer and visit the practice where you can complete all the necessary paperwork.

They may also provide you with the updated TISA form, if not you can download it here. This simple self assessment tool is designed to help you define your learning needs and plan your education during your attachment.
