Information for Trainees

The Fullarton Practice has been recognised as a training practice since 2003 and has a record of providing high quality, positive training experiences to GP trainees.

We have 2 GP trainers – Dr White and Dr Dunne, with other partners currently undertaking trainer’s training. As a GP trainee, you can expect a warm welcome from all of our staff team, tutorials with experienced members of staff and a supportive learning environment that encourages you to develop the wide variety of skills required as a GP. As testament to the positive experiences of our GP trainees, we have *3 former trainees currently working as GPs at the practice. As part of the Ayrshire and Arran training programme, you will receive structured day-release teaching fortnightly and will attend 2 residential events during your ST3 year with other ST3s and their trainers. These events give you valuable mock-CSA practice, exploration of curriculum topics that can be difficult to cover and the chance to socialise with local GPs.

Joanne Gibson, Practice Manager will be happy to arrange an informal visit.

‘As a former trainee myself, I highly recommend the Fullarton Pratice to trainees. There is a good mix of patients from various demographics which lends itself to a broad training experience. Staff are invested in your learning and support you in your areas of interest. Based in South Ayrshire, you can expect some very pleasant drives on your visit days.’
