Come and train to be the best doctor you can be.
The GM Deprivation GPST Programme is for people who want to be GPs in an area of deprivation.
This course is aimed at training the best to be competent, compassionate and eager to see real change in people’s lives, and that they stay there for the long term to be change makers. The programme explores the reality of the health inequalities and social injustice that can be seen in the poorest areas across Greater Manchester. We are looking for those who can see hope in every situation.
