The Home of Dorset GP Training


Dorset offers an exceptional combination of hospital rotations and varied, high quality GP practices. In addition, we have excellent recreational opportunities, quality of life, and fast links to London and the continent. Our trainees are typically keen to stay in the area once trained – a strong endorsement of the quality of work and leisure opportunities here.

The GP Education team organise a regular day release course for GP trainees throughout the 3 years with specialist speakers and small peer support groups, offering outstanding opportunities for learning and support.

The Hospital element of the Dorset Vocational Training Schemes (VTS) run from the main Hospital trusts, University Hospitals Dorset and Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts, and can include attachments in Christchurch, St. Ann’s and Westhaven hospitals. We have approved training practices throughout Dorset, in both urban and rural areas.
