Abstract

Summary: Summary. This article summarizes the findings of a survey investigating the extent to which medical schools in the United Kingdom have developed community‐based undergraduate teaching: the types of courses being run and their content; whether they are being evaluated; and how the students are assessed. Courses have been categorized under four main headings: (1) based in general practice, for teaching about general practice as a clinical specialty or using practice patients for teaching general medicine and basic clinical skills; (2) community‐oriented, led by GP or community tutors; (3) specialist teaching led by hospital consultants; and (4) agency‐based teaching. Twenty‐eight schools responded to a written request for information and details of 83 courses were received. 1994 Blackwell Publishing
