In this study, we are interviewing GP teachers to explore the challenges and opportunities for student learning in general practice during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to identify and share strategies that teaching practices have developed to adapt to the changing environment and establish how we could better support practices to provide student clinical placements at this time.

Learning in general practice is crucial to the education of competent medical graduates, but clinical placements can add to the demands on practices, increase the risk of viral transmission and infection, and increase demand for personal protective equipment.
