Welcome to the FSU Sub deanery Website

What Is Subdeanery?

A pilot has been established through the Federation Support Unit due to the increasing need for more exposure of undergraduate medical students in General Practice and to help ease their orientation into General Practice overall. We are initially based in North Belfast and South West Federation practices with the hope that the pilot may be expanded regionally next year.

Our Main Aims

Our main aims:

  • To maximise capacity of student placements within GP Surgeries.
  • To streamline the allocation of students from QUB and UU into GP surgeries.
  • To enhance placement experience through innovative teaching methods and exposure to local opportunities.
  • To widen GP Tutor engagement and provide generic resources to support teaching practices.
  • To encourage interprofessional learning within Multi-Disciplinary Teams and Peer to Peer Teaching.
