The Scotland Deanery is made up of four regions: East, North, South-East and West.
In some specialties, each region has a separate training programme, for example, there are four separate Emergency Medicine programmes within the Scotland Deanery.
In other specialties, there is one national programme which incorporates all four regions, for example, Plastic Surgery.
We also have a small number of cross-regional programmes which incorporate 2-3 regions, for example, there are two ENT programmes within the Scotland Deanery: one is regional (West); and the other is cross-regional, incorporating East, North and South-East regions.
Trainees in national / cross-regional programmes can rotate through regions and are administered by one region; or remain in the same region and are administered by one region; or rotate through some/all regions.
The Lead Region is that which manages and provides administration for the programme.
The Host Region is that in which the trainee is based for each rotation of the programme
