Education for Primary Care - February free articles

Prof Val Wass, Editor of Education for Primary Care  and Chair of the WONCA Working Party on Education reports that the January issue of Education for Primary Care is now online.

Every month the journal Education for Primary Care provides WONCA members with free access to one interesting article. We are offering free access this month to a paper from Maggie Bartlett and the team at Keele Medical School UK on community attachments for 15 weeks in final year and the accompanying stimulating commentary from Paul Worley.

2018 is a year when we must move for change in medical schools. As Paul Worley “why do we continue to tolerate, despite increasing evidence, the perceivable injustices of the current learning environments we offer doctors in training”.
