Foundation Priority Programmes
Scotland are offering 4 Foundation Priority Programmes (FPPs), 3 of which will be based in the West (W09, W10 and W22) and 1 based in the North (N13), totaling 51 posts. These are split into 45 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. 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.
