GP Fellowship

GP Fellowship now live
Applications currently open to all eligible GPs who are within a year of their CCT

Overview

If you passed your CCT within the past year then you could benefit from the GMTH NHSE GP Fellowship Program, a fantastic opportunity offering weekly paid CPD sessions of £7,200 per year.

The programme is designed to support all those eligible, newly qualified GPs that are in substantive, salaried or partner positions within Greater Manchester.  The GP Fellowship is a 2 year programme of support aimed at welcoming GPs into general practice and their Primary Care Network and allowing for both personal and professional growth.

Throughout the 2 years you will receive access to a monthly, 1 hour mentorship session from an experienced GP, additional coaching, connection with a peer network as well as learning and development podcasts and masterclasses.  Fellows will have portfolio development opportunities based around local health population needs.  This brand new programme is designed to support your transition from a GPST to a GP – with the added benefit that there are no essays and no examinations at the end.

You can apply if you are currently working in general practice or if you’re about to start a new position. If you are ready to apply then please complete the registration form and email it to [email protected] If you don’t yet have a substantive position then we can connect you with colleagues who can you support you finding a job so please email us or fill out an expression of interest form.

If you have any questions please email us at [email protected], alternatively, we are happy to arrange a meeting to discuss any questions or queries you may have to support you on the next step of your journey.
