Training placements

Extended skills term

Extended skills term

You can undertake an extended skills term in general practice or an area relevant to general practice during core vocational training.

If you decide to extend your skills in community general practice, we’ll place you just as we do for GPT1, 2 and 3.

If you’d like to extend your skills in another area, you’ll need to arrange your own placement and have it approved. However, your program team can give you information about accredited training sites in your areas of interest. You can find out more in Extended skills training.
