What makes students happy?

… Introduction • “We were met and introduced to the practice well … we felt at home and comfortable” • Access to staff facilities • Aims for the placement

… Histories • “We had teaching sessions … about a certain condition and the doctors had organised patients to come and see us with the condition so that we could take a history, formulate management plans and practice presenting … this placement has been my best GP placement to date”

… Skills • “The chance to clerk patients every week significantly enabled me to improve my history taking and examination skills” • “GP was very good at teaching both with clinical knowledge, but also with communication skills”

… Feedback • “Each doctor gave feedback after each history and examination, and at the end of the week individual feedback was given” • “Doctor was able to … give more comprehensive feedback which otherwise we wouldn't normally get in an acute hospital setting”

… Relevance • “Focused teaching on topics relevant to met3a” • “Clinical teaching was useful for consolidating knowledge … however the insight into the ethical, legal, clinical and interdisciplinary dilemmas which face GPs was extremely useful”

… Logbook • “Was difficult filling out the 4 histories in the GP section of the logbook” • “The tutor was aware of our student needs including signing off in our log books”

… Extra work • “He also provided us with extra homework … which has been extremely useful” • “It was good that we were always asked to go away and do set work before the next session”
