1 Being a General Practitioner

This section of our curriculum guide refers to statement 1, Being a General Practitioner, produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

The core curriculum statement defines the key learning outcomes for the discipline of general practice, and the skills required to practice medicine as a GP in the UK. The domains listed in the core statement describe the fundamental aspects of general practice and provide the framework for the whole curriculum.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.
