ScotGEM is designed to develop doctors interested in a career as a generalist practitioner within NHS Scotland, with a focus on rural medicine and healthcare improvement. It offers a unique and innovative 4-year graduate entry medical programme tailored to meet the contemporary and future needs of the NHS in Scotland.
The course will capitalise on the existing strengths of medical teaching in the Universities of Dundee and St Andrews and our local health boards in Fife and Tayside. In addition, our collaboration with NHS Highland, NHS Dumfries and Galloway and the University of Highlands and Islands will enable us to develop a truly distinctive programme offering training that is ideal for those interested in a career as a generalist practitioner. This includes offering extended opportunities to train in remote and rural areas. The ScotGEM programme will be tailored to the specific needs of graduates, taking account of the experience acquired during their initial degree.
