Career Start Scheme



In Grampian we offer a unique opportunity called the Career Start Scheme.  It is a scheme that is run annually and offers our trainees the opportunity to apply for 1 year posts at the end of their GP Specialty Training.  

The posts are combined General Practice and Secondary Care and allow you to develop a special interest which you can then pursue alongside your career as a GP.  A number of the GPs featured on the blog are graduates of the scheme.

This programme has been running in Grampian for the past 8 years and it has proved to be very popular with the GP trainees using it as a stepping stone between training and a more substantive post.

We will be advertising 7 posts to start in August 2013 with the following specialties.  
  • Unscheduled care -3 posts 
  • Palliative care 
  • Mental Health 
  • Sexual health 
  • Dermatology 
This is the only scheme of its kind in Scotland!
