TRS Medical Students
Theatre Royal Surgery has always been a training practice. In association with the University of East Anglia (UEA) Medical School, one of our partners currently trains medical students here, on site during university term time:-
- Dr. Klaus Koch - Year One Students (Thursdays)
Dr. Koch is ably assisted by Dr. Sarah Stevens who undertakes some of the teaching throughout the academic year.
From time to time the tutors, your GP or our student administrator, Nicky Seaton, may contact patients to see whether they would be willing to meet with the students. The ability to consult with 'real' patients is a considerable help to the students and those consultations are, of course, properly supervised by the tutors.
We are very grateful to those patients who have already kindly volunteered to help train our GP's of the future.
If you are interested in doing this, please mention it to your GP or contact Tracey on 01362 852800.

Commencing in 2014, Dr. Rachel Kinnaird was been involved in the training of pairs Year Five Students. These students were nearing the end of their UEA Medical School training and each pair spent three days at a number of different practices around Norfolk. Whilst they were with us they are actively involved in clinics (e.g. phlebotomy) as well as carrying out consultations with supervision and mentoring provided by the partners.
