Rural practice offers a wealth of learning opportunities for medical students. If you’re thinking about ‘going rural’ for your GP placement, you might want to watch this video that has been produced to highlight what rural practice has to offer.
Aberdeen and Dundee Universities already have rural programmes for GP experience. Glasgow is making these increasingly available. If you’re interested, speak to your GP department about what rural practices you can go to as part of your GP block.
