Requirements for new tutors/teaching practices

Application process for practice-based teaching opportunities:

We welcome applications from GP practices that would like to undertake practice-based teaching for our Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London students. 

The first stage in the process is for the practice to complete and return an application form to become an accredited Barts and The London teaching practice.  

Our Community Based Medical Education team will then review the application and contact the practice to arrange a convenient time to visit. This practice visit is an opportunity for us to meet with the practice team and discuss teaching options, training, quality, and the practice site and resources etc, to make sure the practice is ready to start teaching.
