  • The Innovation in Medical Education project, based in the Department of General Practice and Primary Care, King's College School of Medicine and Dentistry aimed to explore the implications of a substantial move of medical education into the community. The main areas covered were: interviews with a wide range of interest groups or stakeholders; interviews with general practitioners to determine how their involvement might be maximised; and the development of appropriate teaching and learning materials. A national conference was held midway through the project to present the interim findings and test out whether they were applicable at a national level. This report gives details of the background, rationale and methodology, and overview of the main findings. It also includes: guidelines for setting up community based teaching based on the experience of the King's College Medical Firm in the Community; details of the various stakeholders' views on increased community based medical education and its implications for them; and an analysis of the funding and accountability of medical education at a national level.
