At Alresford Surgery we teach both student and qualified doctors and run a regular education programme to keep ourselves up to date with the ever changing world of healthcare.
In conjunction with the University of Southampton Medical school we provide teaching and general practice experience to students at various stages of their training. In addition we are affiliated to the Wessex Deanery to provide postgraduate medical education to Foundation Year 1 and 2 doctors and Registrars in General Practice.
If your doctor has a student doctor sitting in on their surgery you will be informed and your permission is sought for them to remain during your consultation. We are very grateful to our patients for the experience they give to these students.
Registrars in General Practice
Alresford Surgery is a recognised training practice within the Wessex Deanery. Dr Wright, Dr Webb and Dr Cross are fully qualified trainers which enables them to look after both Foundation Year and Registrars. Foundation Year doctors are usually with us for four months gaining experience in general practice as part of their post graduate general medical training. Registrars are usually with us for at least a year and receive the final part of their training in general practice before becoming fully fledged GPs in their own right. Both Foundation Year doctors and Registrars are fully qualified doctors and see patients in routine surgeries while being closely supervised by their trainer and have regular tutorials to support their professional development.
