This year we have a new option for anyone who has completed Foundation but does not yet feel ready to commit to specialty Training. The Career Development posts are for 1 year and are a combination of two 6 month hospital posts along with 6 x 1 week release to general practice.
In the North of Scotland we have 6 of these posts. The posts would form an excellent basis for a future application to general practice and the skills gained should stand you in good stead for the recruitment process for GPST next year. The time spent in the posts will not however count towards your GP training and you would still be expected to complete the full training program if you were successful in applying to GPST for August 2016.
For more information on these posts follow the link below.
