Trainee information

Welcome to the Scotland Deanery

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!

Welcome to the Deanery 

Supporting your training

 

Governance of Training Management

Within the Scotland Deanery, training programmes are arranged either a) regionally or b) multi-regionally /nationally. All training programmes sit within a specialty grouping; for each grouping there is a Lead Postgraduate Dean and a Specialty Training Board (more information on Specialty Training Boards can be found here). The following diagram describes the individuals with responsibility for a trainee within a regional or multi-regional/national programme

 

 

 

Training Management Team

We are here to help and assist every step of the way to ensure you achieve your CCT (CESR or CCST) and develop the right skills and experience to successfully practice as a consultant, dental specialist, or GP, whatever your career plan and specialty.
