Training and Research

Training practice

We are approved by the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery to train GP Registrars and Foundation doctors.

GP Registrars are qualified doctors who have chosen General practice for their medical career and are required to do two years training in a GP practice.

Foundation doctors are qualified doctors who have not necessarily chosen General practice for their medical career. They are required to do a four month placement in order to gain experience in General practice.

We are also training medical students from Leicester University. They are supervised at all times and do not make patient management decisions on their own.

We acknowledge that some patients may prefer not to see a doctor in training, or a student and we will respect any concerns you may have. Please let a member of staff know if you do not wish to seen by a trainee or be seen by the doctor with a trainee present.


The Studfall Partnership is now accredited as Research Ready by the Royal College of General Practitioners. We only participate in research that is approved and ethically cleared through the Primary Care Research Network which is part of the National Institute of Health Research.

We thank those patients who have consented to take part in the ongoing PACE study by Cambridge University which will help us improve care of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
