Community and Rural Education Route (CARER)

Cardiff Medical School, Aberystwyth University and Cambrian Primary Care have been working together on an exciting new programme which will see group of seven medical students based in Aberystwyth from September 2018 for a year. Each student will be allocated to a GP practice to spend the majority of their time seeing patients and having 1:1 training with their GP tutor. They will spend one day a week together in Aberystwyth University having teaching with the locally based Senior Clinical Lecturer in Rural practice.

During this year long placement (referred to as a ‘Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship’ or ‘LIC’) they will work towards the same learning outcomes from the same innovative curriculum as their peers on the C21 pathway, under the guidance of the small dedicated team of experts.

Educational institutions from around the world have been running LIC programmes similar to the CARER pathway for over 15 years. There is increasing evidence that they are effective in preparing students for their future careers, no matter which area of Medicine you wish to finally settle in and that a higher percentage of the students chose careers in rural areas and general practice.
