This book is for all those who teach general practice to medical students, both those based in academic departments and `service' general practitioners. It aims to combine the theoretical basis for teaching with practical material, and explores the extent to which general practice can andshould take on teaching traditionally carried out in hospital (e.g. basic clinical skills training).
C. Whitehouse and M. Roland are both at the University of Manchester. P. Campion is at University of Hull.
