[Extract] Community settings, including general practices, have become increasingly important for the delivery of medical undergraduate education in the past 20 years.1 The reasons for this are well documented and include: changing patterns of health care delivery with reduced numbers of hospital inpatients,2,3 recognition that patients in teaching hospitals are not representative of the general population,4 and an emphasis on community management of chronic disease.5 Experiences in general practice include early patient contact, learning basic clinical skills (history taking and physical examination) and enhancing knowledge of medical conditions, especially chronic disease in nonhospital settings.
