This practice provides training for 4th year medical students from Hull York Medical School. When making an appointment to see a doctor the receptionist may ask you if you would take part in a supervised consultation involving a medical student. A GP partner from this practice will join the consultation to review the discussion with you and the student and ensure appropriate care and treatment is provided. You may prefer not to, but your cooperation in training the Doctors of the future would be greatly appreciated. http://www.hyms.ac.uk/
