GP training is designed to give doctors a solid grounding in the skills and experiences that will prepare them for GP life. This also includes giving them experiences in the acute specialties that interact most closely with primary care.

The purpose of GP training programmes is to equip potential GPs for the wide range of patients, conditions and challenges they will face as a principal in general practice.

Further information about the registration of GPs can be found in the Licences to Practise and Revalidation topic.
