Linking general practices to the medical schools: qualitative issues Academic Article uri icon


  • The University Linked Practices (ULP) programme links general practices involved in undergraduate medical education with computer services provided through the school of medicine and dentistry. In-depth interviews were conducted with 26 staff involved in teaching undergraduate medical students in 15 general practices across east London and Essex. The interview schedule focused on the use of the computer, IT experience and training needs and the use of the computer network as a resource in undergraduate teaching. It is important to work with curriculum planners to ensure that computers are fully integrated into new courses.
