Gain GP Experience.
Think you have what it takes to be a Doctor? Well, now you can actually become the GP. You will take actual patient histories, form diagnoses, order tests & scans and suggest treatment plans.
Our ground-breaking GP Live gives students the opportunity to host their own GP surgery, under the guidance of our Mentors. We have a bank of real medical cases and students will have patients to take patient histories from, and then discuss the assessment with other students and the Doctor.
Unlike other courses that use pre-recorded videos, this course is LIVE and interactive. Students will talk directly to patients and have the full support of the group and our Doctors to work through each case. After each case, there is a full breakdown of the medical side as well as looking at communication and the role of a Doctor. Real experience, real medical cases and real insight. Better than shadowing a GP – You are the GP!

The Future of Medical Education… Today.
Technology has accelerated “tele-medicine”, and it is the future of healthcare. Here at Medical Projects, we are ensuring we bring these evolutions in healthcare to our aspiring medical students.
We have built our own GP Surgery within a live-streaming studio so we can conduct online consultations with our students. This course starts with our Doctors teaching students about primary healthcare before progressing to learning how to take a patient history. Students will then watch live demonstrations of typical patient cases. Students will be able to ask questions and discuss each medical case.
Students will then progress to talking directly to the patients themselves, taking full patient histories, forming diagnoses, ordering scans or tests and setting treatment plans. Our Doctors are on hand to help guide and support students through the entire process. There is no better experience and insight than full immersion into the role of GP.

Are they real patients?
All the medical cases are real and are delivered by medical actors. Every actor is prepped with an extensive medical history and will be able to answer any questions you have.
How does it work online?
We have built a GP Surgery within a TV studio that you can access via our online platform. You will be on-screen so the Doctor and patients can see and hear you. You will be able to interact with everyone directly from your computer at home. You will need a working video and microphone on your computer or laptop.
Won’t everyone doing this course have the same experience?
All the patient cases will be different on each course so every course is unique. And nearly half of the course is live interaction between the students, patients and doctors so it’s always unique. We don’t use pre-recorded videos, it’s all 100% live.
