At 28 Beaumont Street, we pride ourselves on being a well-established and successful teaching practice. This section contains relevant information for our patients, and for prospective medical students and doctors hoping to train here.
We welcome both first year and fifth year medical students on placement from the Oxford University Medical School at the practice. Medical students will spend most of their time observing GPs and other staff as they work. This is an essential aspect of their training.
Medical students will never be given the responsibility of making a clinical decision, although may be asked to interview or examine you before your own doctor does. Notices will be posted in reception informing you which doctors may have medical students in their consulting rooms with them. You can simply inform the receptionist if you do not wish a student to be present. There will also be an opportunity to remind your doctor that you have decided not to have a medical student present when your doctor invites you to come into the consulting room.
The training of medical students is co-ordinated by Dr Chloe Borton.
How this affects our patients
When you visit 28 Beaumont Street as a patient you will occasionally be asked if you mind having a medical student see you or be present during your consultation.
As is true with our practice doctors and nurses, all medical students will respect the confidentiality of your medical information, your consent and privacy.
Dr Chloe Borton co-ordinates the teaching for undergraduate and post-graduate students within the practice, and also oversees their clinical practice. She would welcome your comments about your experience of meeting medical students at 28 Beaumont Street. You can contact Dr Borton by making a telephone appointment at the practice or sending an email to the practice email address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
