Observe GP: Virtual Work Experience for Healthcare

Observe GP is an alternative to work experience for aspiring medics aged 16 and over, who are living in the UK. It is a free interactive video platform providing insights into the role of a GP and the wider primary care team. 

Applicants to medicine are required to demonstrate on their application – and at interview – that they have gained an understanding of some of the realities of medicine and that they have witnessed and developed the core values and attributes needed to study medicine. Observe GP has been designed as an innovative way for aspiring medics to learn more about these.

In the past applicants have been required to complete work experience in a healthcare setting to gain this insight. This interactive platform from the Royal College of Practitioners is designed to do the same from the comfort of the classroom or home.
