ABOUT THE JOURNAL
InnovAiT is the RCGP journal that promotes excellence in primary care through quality education. It was developed to support Associates in Training (AiTs) of the Royal College of General Practitioners from entry into specialist training to qualification. It is also a valuable resource for; GP trainers, trained GPs who wish to update and maintain their knowledge base, newly qualified (First5) GPs wanting to extend their knowledge, practice and community nurses, and foundation level doctors and medical students contemplating a career in primary care.
InnovAiT complements the BJGP. Rotating through the whole RCGP curriculum on a 3-year cycle, each issue covers 2 clinical themes, and one non-clinical area. Other regular features include a news section highlighting important policies, research and guidelines relevant to GPs; GP career profiles and insights from GPs at different stages in their careers; and exam tips for the MRCGP examination. The Journal includes ‘applied knowledge test’ questions to enable readers to check their own knowledge and 10-minute scenarios that can be used for tutorials, personal learning or discussion in groups.
InnovAiT welcomes contributions from AiTs and GPs based on subjects that would be relevant to the readership. Published monthly, Associates in Training of the RCGP receive a free print and online subscription to InnovAiT as part of their AiT membership of the College. Special subscription rates are available for medical students, foundation doctors and non-AiT RCGP Members.
