How Become a General Practitioner?
General Practitioner is very similar to the requirements to become a barrister or judge in the UK. A GP should have a good knowledge of medicine, hospital medicine, pharmacology, and molecular biology, as well as excellent clinical judgment.
To do this, a candidate needs at least five years of medical practice experience. The number of General Practitioners is increasing in the UK and will be looking for the same skills that were available in the past.
A lot of General Practitioners have clinical experience as a GP or private physician. This is useful if you want to get into medical research or clinical psychology.
What Do General Practitioners Do?
