GP Trainees

Welcome to the Northern Ireland GPST Programme. We hope that you enjoy your time with us. Being a GP is a great job and there are many enthusiastic talented people within our Deanery to help you during your training. Our trainees have a track record of excellent performance in the MRCGP and our programmes offer a wide variety of training in rural and urban settings.

Our aim is to

Prepare GPs in training to deliver excellent primary care to patients and communities.

Our training programmes offer high quality training. Trainers and programme directors meet regularly to improve standards of training to try to meet your needs. The programmes offer a wide variety of training in rural and urban settings.  There are training practices in affluent areas and areas of high deprivation, offering experience of many of the social and healthcare problems that arise from this.
