Northern Ireland has some of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty anywhere in the UK. Recently it has been tipped by Lonely Planet as one of the ‘must see’ countries to visit in 2007. We offer both a vibrant city life and beautiful countryside - from the Giants Causeway in North Antrim to the Mourne Mountains in Co Down, from the Lakes of Fermanagh to the beautiful scenery of the North West. The landscape is astonishingly beautiful, the people are warm and genuine and the craic is great. Northern Ireland is known to have one of the lowest costs of living and the highest standard of living within the UK.

The Northern Ireland Medical and Dental Training Agency (Deanery offices) are based on the outskirts of South Belfast. The Deanery is relatively small and consequently provides a personal service to all of the junior doctors on our scheme. We promote a learner-centred approach to training and provide high quality educational opportunities for all embarking on training for a career in general practice. We aim to provide the highest standard of training for all our trainees. The GP Vocational Training Scheme is one of the most popular GP training programmes in the UK.

We were one of the first deaneries within the UK to use Competency Based Selection for Recruitment to General Practice. This year we are offering 65 GPSt1 places on the 3- year training programme.  We have 91 training practices located throughout the whole of Northern Ireland. All those undertaking training are allocated to one of five day-release programmes based in postgraduate centres and general practices across the deanery
