We are delighted that the Scottish Government has chosen the Universities of Dundee and St Andrews Schools of Medicine to lead Scotland’s first graduate entry, undergraduate medical programme.
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 (GP, general surgeon etc.).
The ScotGEM programme will be tailored to the specific needs of graduates, taking account of the experience acquired during their initial degree and will include extended opportunities to train in remote and rural areas. ScotGEM will matriculate its first cohort of 40 students in September 2018, following applications made through UCAS, to the University of St Andrews, School of Medicine.
Further detailed information on the ScotGEM application process and deadlines, curriculum, teaching approaches, fees and bursaries can be found on St Andrews ScotGEM course page.
