How to Succeed on Primary Care and Community Placements

HYMS is pleased to announce that Dr David Pearson’s book ‘How to Succeed on Primary Care and Community Placements’ will be published on 25th December 2015. The book offers practical advice on how to get the most from community visits, patient consultations, and with the practice team. It highlights the unique opportunities and challenges faced on placement, from using clinical information systems, to home visits and long term patient relationships, and how to take advantage of new ways of learning with web-based tools, mobile devices and social networking.


Key features include:

  • Learning outcomes at the start of each chapter with links to web-based learning, case examples, and tasks to undertake whilst on placement
  • An evidence-based, practical approach to improving learning, teaching, assessment and feedback in community settings

    Written by a team of experienced community-based medical education specialists, it is ideal for all medical students, whether on early clinical placements or later in training, and for tutors and preceptors looking for novel ways to engage their students.
