NHS Dumfries and Galloway is a partner in the Scottish Graduate Entry Medicine programme (ScotGEM).
The first cohort began their studies in St Andrews in the summer of 2018 and groups of 12-14 second year students, 14 third year students and 5 fourth year students will be in our region from 9th August 2021 to June 2022. Further information is available on the St Andrews University website by clicking this banner or from Dr Fiona Graham, Director of Medical Education (ScotGEM) [email protected] or Tracy MacPhee ScotGEM Co-ordinator (D&G) [email protected]
ScotGEM is designed to develop doctors interested in a career as a generalist practitioner within NHS Scotland. ScotGEM offers a unique and innovative four-year graduate entry medical programme tailored to meet the contemporary and future needs of the NHS in Scotland and focuses on rural medicine and healthcare improvement.
The programme will capitalise on the existing strengths of medical teaching in the universities of St Andrews and Dundee in collaboration with NHS Dumfries and Galloway, NHS Fife, NHS Tayside, NHS Highland, and the University of the Highlands and Islands. This exciting partnership enables the development of a truly distinctive programme.
