Supporting the next generation of general practitioners

The north west London general practice (GP) training programme is led by the Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC) (a partnership between Imperial College Healthcare and Imperial College London), alongside GPs in Hammersmith and Fulham, and the surrounding area. The programme is the only London-based GP scheme which is centred at an academic department of primary care and public health. This means you’ll have the opportunity to learn about and take part in academic research and teaching, and furthermore, help to influence and shape the scheme itself.

The programme aims to prepare you for a career in the future NHS.  Throughout the three year programme trainees build skills and knowledge in newly acquired GP roles such as: public health, commissioning, leadership and practice management.  Trainees also learn how to become responsive to the government’s national objectives and the changing needs and expectations of patients.
