Accredited Teaching Practice

Stowhealth has taken part in teaching Medical students from the University of East Anglia for over ten years. In addition to this the practice provides placements to F2 Doctors and GP Registrars who are in the final stages of completing their qualifications.

To ensure these doctors are provided with the highest quality of training Stowhealth and its doctors have completed a detailed accreditation process and our lead training GPs undertaken a professional training qualification.

UEA Medical Students

The students find their time at the practice invaluable. They learn from the many patients who kindly give their time to come in to talk to our students about their medical condition, and allow the students to examine them. This usually takes approximately 1 hour. Learning directly from patients  gives the students real life experiences to help them to make sense of the enormous amounts of information they have to learn.

The patients, often returning year upon year, enjoy meeting enthusiastic young students, and feel they are giving something back to society in return for the care they have received at Stowhealth.

We currently teach three different years of undergraduates,covering a wide range of  topics, including for example Asthma, Heart disease, Depression/anxiety and joint problems.
