Solway Medical Group is an accredited training practice for medical students from Dundee University and for trainee doctors at different stages of their career.
These are doctors who are doing their General Practice Speciality Training (GPST) over three or four years. They will spend eighteen months of their training with us here at Solway Medical Group and the rest of their time in a hospital setting.
Foundation Year 2 Doctors are also qualified but have yet to choose their preferred speciality. FY2s spend four months with us before going on to train in their chosen field of expertise.
ScotGEM is designed to develop doctors who are interested in a career as a GP within NHS Scotland. This is a unique and innovative four year graduate entry medical program tailored to meet contemporary and future needs and focuses on rural medicine and healthcare improvement.
Solway Medical Group has a long standing relationship with Dundee University, providing placement experience for fourth and fifth year medical students. These students spend four weeks with us in General Practice.
