Training Practice

Medical Students

Sheringham Medical Practice is proud to be a training practice for 4th year medical students from the University of East Anglia and we are looking to recruit patients to volunteer to come and speak with our medical students on one of the following three modules (this is not a group participation with other patients)

  • Women’s Health, Obstetrics & Gynaecology
    • (for example: benign breast lumps, breast cancer, mastectomy, vaginal prolapse, ectopic pregnancy, menopause, HRT, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, miscarriage, bladder problems, hysterectomy, infertility, IVF, patients currently pregnant)
  • Babies/Children’s Health & General Development
    • (age range from new born to 16-17years of age – this Module covers any medical condition and/or general development).
  • Mental Health
    • (for example: anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, panic attacks, bipolar, eating disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress syndrome, phobias, post-natal depression).

Please contact us for further information if you currently have/have previously had any of the medical conditions above, or have any other condition not listed under the three modules that would be appropriate and you would be happy to come and speak to two or three medical students on a Monday for 1 hour (appointment times are usually 11:00 and 14:00).

All appointments with the students will be confidential

Please call 01263 820509 for further information

You could win yourself a £20 worth of shopping vouchers by way of ‘thank you’ from the surgery for taking part, if your name is drawn from the list of participants at the end of each module.

Feedback from patients who have come to speak to medical students in the past have been very positive and many patients come back year on year to speak with the new intake of 4th year medical students.

This is a great opportunity for you to share your health experiences with the next generation of doctors.

Video Recording

As a training practice video recordings are sometimes made of consultations. These are made for teaching purposes only. Video recordings are only done with your consent and you do have the right to refuse. However, we would stress that all aspects of general practice, including training, are governed by rules of strict confidentiality.

No examinations are filmed.
