The Foundation and Specialty Training Boards have an advisory role within the Deanery. They provide an expert overview of the programmes, information on curriculum changes, advice on workforce planning and a forum to discuss policy and other issues. Furthermore, the Boards provide expert input on curriculum delivery and the quality management of training programmes.
Each specialty grouping has a Specialty Training Board (STB) made up of Associate Deans, Training Programme Directors, College representatives, academics and trainees.
There are 8 Boards, covering groups of specialties and the Foundation programme.
Each STB is chaired by an Associate Dean or Director. There is a Lead Dean/Director for each specialty grouping and an administrative team. Therefore wherever you are in Scotland there are lead Deanery people overseeing your training. If you are a Foundation trainee, you can refer to the Foundation School pages for further information specific to you.
