Abstract

This article presents an account of curriculum development work undertaken over the last two years which has aimed to narrow the gap between professional and academic study in GP registrar education and to capitalise on the strengths of inter-professional education. At King Alfred's College, Winchester, a pathway through an MA (Education) has been designed based upon insight into the educational priorities of the course organisers and registrars, the findings of a recent evaluation of the Mid-Wessex Day-Release Course (MWDRC), and current educational priorities for medicine and medical education set by the Department of Health. The article traces the background to the creation of the pathway, and outlines the changes made to the MWDRC programme.
