Scotland - the home of medical excellence


Under the UK recruitment process, Scotland acts as one Specialised Unit of Application (SUoA) which is part of the Scottish Foundation School. Applications for Specialised Programmes are completed through the main recruitment system Oriel.

Applicants choosing to apply for Specialised Foundation Programmes will do this as part of the primary Foundation programme (FP) application form on Oriel, which includes the option to apply for Specialised Foundation Programme (SFPs) and Foundation Priority Programmes (FPPs). Applicants will receive an automated e-mail from Oriel to confirm submission of their application.

Please read the UKFP 2022 Applicant Handbook before continuing with your application.
