As a newly qualified GP, CPTH’s General Practice Fellowship scheme is designed to provide you with a 2-year programme of support and education when you take up a substantive role in a Cambridgeshire & Peterborough practice.

You’ll benefit from a combination of early career learning, mentorship, peer support and coaching, to help you develop clinical and leadership skills and to facilitate development within your practice and across the wider Primary Care Network.

We are now able to offer fellowship places on the 2-year programme for any GP who

  • qualified in the last 12 months (rolling)
  • is employed in a substantive post (salaried, partnership or fixed term contract for a minimum term of 2 years)
