Scotland is a vast and diverse Deanery. We can offer you an abundance of challenges and opportunities including remote and rural training, which develops a wider variety of clinical skills. And urban training, which brings experience of social and health problems associated with areas of affluence and poverty.

Training as a GP in Scotland means that no one day is the same….

Within Scotland there are four distinct Deaneries, East, North, South East and West. Each Deanery offers you different opportunities and lifestyles so you can really tailor your training to suit you.

Scotland has consistently had a high success rate in the MRCGP examination and is highly rated by trainees in the GMC survey. Our trainers are experienced, committed and dedicated to helping you get the most out of your time with us.

Scotland offers bustling cosmopolitan cities boasting extensive shopping, culture and nightlife; spectacular mountain scenery offering world class sports such as mountain biking, climbing, hill walking and skiing. We have a coastline longer than the rest of the UK put together which as well as fantastic views can offer great sailing, surfing and kayaking. Scotland has an extensive transport system including local buses, national railways and international airports; living in Scotland gives you excellent access to London, the rest of the UK and beyond.

There is so much to see and do in Scotland; we can offer the urban or the country lifestyles and even a mixture of both, wherever you go you will never be far from the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish countryside. It would be difficult to find any other part of the UK that has as much to offer as Scotland.

Scotland remains to be one of the most exciting places to train in the UK. We look forward to welcoming you and we are sure you will want to stay!
