Teaching & Research

Theatre Royal Surgery Medical Students 

Theatre Royal Surgery has always been a training practice.  In association with the University of East Anglia (UEA) Medical School, one of our Locum GPs trains medical students here, on site during university term time:-

  • Dr. Sarah Stevens teaches year one medical students on Thursdays during the academic year.

From time to time the tutors, your GP or our student administrator, Nicky Seaton, may contact patients to see whether they would be willing to meet with the students.  The ability to consult with 'real' patients is a considerable help to the students and those consultations are, of course, properly supervised by the tutors.

We are very grateful to those patients who have already kindly volunteered to help train our GP's of the future.

If you are interested in doing this, please mention it to your GP or contact Tracey on 01362 852800.
