  • Our resources are organised according to the RCGP’s 2012 GP curriculum headings which has 4 contextual statements accompanied by 21 clinical areas (referred to as the interpretative statements) in which you are expected to demonstrate the 4 contextual statements.    Think of it this way – the 4 contextual statements define from a bird’s eye view of what it is to  ‘Be a GP’ (the ultimate ‘core’ statement of the GP Curriculum).  This is demonstrated at the ground level by the 21 clinical areas.
  • For some of you, perhaps this explanation will serve you better.  Context is what gives something meaning.  For example, the word ‘trip‘ can have several meanings.   The trip to India was fab.   I was tripped out on Ecstasy.  I wouldn’t have banged my head if I hadn’t tripped over the cable.  I really tripped up in that CSA exam.   Can you see how in each of these cases, it is the context that defines the word.   Likewise, the 4 contextual statements define what it is ‘to be a GP’ – your ultimate destination.  Context is what gives something meaning.  But the word contextual can be used to define the congruent relationship between two or more parts (in our case, four parts).  So now that we have four contextual statements defining what it is ‘to be a GP’, we can now map out the areas in which we are expected to perform them (the 21 clinical interpretive statements).
  • We have added a few additional ‘clinical’ sub-folders of our own (4-xx above) to cater for those items which we found difficult to place elsewhere.
