Changing priorities in the NHS have underlined the crucial importance of academic general practice in providing quality training and researcb to underpin developments in general practice.
Unfortunately, several problems and constraints mean that the full potential of general practitioners to make a contribution to teaching and research has not been realised.
These issues are examined and recommendations for improvements are made.
Obstacles to career development for academics in general practice should be removed.
The funding of academic general practice should be the same as for other medical disciplines.
Vocational training for general practice should be extended to include research and audit methods, particularly for doctors interested in an academic career.
