Foundation Priority Programmes
Scotland are offering 3 Foundation Priority Programmes (FPPs), 2 of which will be based in the West (W06 and W19) and 1 based in the North (N12), totaling 42 posts. These are split into 36 programmes in the West and 6 programmes in the North. The programmes offered will provide remote and rural exposure and provide trainees with a greater awareness of the patient journey and primary/community and secondary interfaces in a remote and rural setting. Doctors who secure one of these programmes will avoid having to geographically relocate between F1 and F2. All posts seek to offer geographical stability for doctors in training in Scotland. Dependent upon the location selected some of these programmes will offer; a remote and rural 'bootcamp'; enhanced immersive simulation and clinical skills sessions; free on-site accommodation with en-suite facilities; social calendar; links to active sports; evening clinical skills updates; in-house ILS/ALS courses; regular education timetable. This list is not exhaustive.
Details of rotations available can be found on the Foundation Programmes pages for N12, W06 and W19. Foundation Priority Programme are fixed two-year rotations.
