About the school

During the 3 year GP Specialty Training Programme, we aim to provide the highest standard of training for doctors who wish to pursue a career in General Practice, and to give them the best start to their General Practice career.

Thames Valley is composed of three counties, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, although we do have some training practices located in adjoining counties. The GP School have six Training Schemes covering the Chilterns and Cotswolds – North Oxfordshire, Oxford, Reading & Newbury, Milton Keynes, Bucks (Aylesbury/Wycombe) and Windsor. The Training Schemes are facilitated by Teams of experienced and enthusiastic Programme Directors, with over 250 Trainers spread across 140 Training Practices to support around 470 trainees. We have a range of training practices that serve both very rural areas and inner cities. It is a popular place to train, not only because of the high standard of training practices, but also the easy access to all other parts of the country.

Whether you want to work and live in the countryside or in the city, both options are available.
