Arran Medical Group is a training practice

Throughout the sites we enjoy having local school pupils, students, trainees, rural fellows work with us – they bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm into the practice, and teaching is a natural role of being a doctor or nurse.  The trainees are fully qualified doctors and work under the supervision of a senior doctor.  Trainee doctors may sometimes ask to record consultations, but patients will always be asked in advance and given the choice of declining.

We are grateful to our patients for their understanding that teaching sometimes makes appointments a bit longer, but often a bit more fun and interesting too.  It is a vital part of helping to educate and train the next generation of GPs too.
