We have created two short induction films to tell you about our deanery, how it works and what you can expect as you begin your training. We hope you find these useful and informative!
Governance of Training Management
Within the Scotland Deanery, training programmes are arranged either a) regionally or b) multi-regionally /nationally. To ensure clear lines of governance, the following diagram describes the individuals with responsibility for a trainee within a regional or multi-regional/national programme. Each trainee is overseen by a Postgraduate Dean (PGD) or GP Director (GPD).
a) Regional Model
b) Multi-region / National Model
