As with most things in life, you tend to get out of GP training what you put into it. If your aim is to simply complete training and become a GP, this will likely be achieved (and is by no means a small accomplishment) – but have you taken advantage of all opportunities available to you? Your GP training years make up a small but hugely important passage in your life. Do you want to look back in the years to come and wonder if you could have done more?
You are preparing to enter one of the most fascinating careers in medicine. It is one full of diversity, opportunity, challenges and rewards – one that tends to become part of the way we live our life. This audiobook shares with you some key ideas, tips and principles for making your GP training period the most fulfilling, positive and exciting time as possible.
Having been a trainee myself fairly recently (and now looking back wondering if I made the most out of my own training), these principles aim to inspire belief and confidence, demonstrating that what you do, how you think and how you are at work, have a huge influence on your ongoing career, as well as the person and GP that you ultimately become.
