Dr Jessica Buchan

Teaching

I am responsible for the year 4 Primary Care course, which along with Dermatology and Care of the Elderly forms part of the Community Orientated Practice 2 Unit. I oversee the central teaching delivered both by lectures, and by small group work where students can hone their communication skills with simulated patients in realistic GP scenarios. I also oversee the students going out across the academies on GP placements and organise the assessments. Each student spends 4 weeks (usually one to one) with a GP, learning all the elements of the consultation and about the delivery of primary care in the UK.
