Course summary

TEF GoldUniversity of St Andrews has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.Find out more about the TEF (https://www.ucas.com/tef).Scottish Graduate Entry Medicine (ScotGEM) is a unique and innovative 4-year graduate entry medical programme run jointly between the Universities of St Andrews and Dundee, in partnership with the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) and NHS Scotland. It is tailored to meet the contemporary and future needs of the NHS in Scotland and will include training opportunities in NHS Fife, Tayside, Highland and Dumfries and Galloway. It has the full support of the Scottish Government. ScotGEM will capitalise on the existing strengths of medical teaching in the two Universities and local health boards of Fife and Tayside. In addition, our collaboration with NHS Highland, NHS Dumfries and Galloway and the UHI allow us to offer a programme that is truly distinctive. Training will be embedded in the community initially but with secondary care placements increasing in later years. Community engagement is to be expected (such as service within the charitable sector), as are extended opportunities to train in remote and rural areas of Scotland. ScotGEM affords training that is ideal for those interested in a generalist career within the Scottish NHS. The ScotGEM programme is tailored to the specific needs of graduates, taking account of the experience acquired during their initial degree, leading to a degree jointly awarded by St Andrews and Dundee that will meet General Medical Council (GMC) Primary Medical Qualification (PMQ) requirements. Please note ScotGEM is subject to approval by the GMC and the process of accreditation is well underway. You should be aware that this process is expected to be completed prior to the graduation of the first cohort of students in September 2022. Full details of the programme are available at: https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/subjects/medicine/scotgem-mbchb/ Applications and decisions will be processed through the University of St Andrews. Please note that those who are ‘overseas’ for fee purposes are not eligible to apply for this course. Students on the ScotGEM course are offered a 'return of service' bursary, a grant worth up to £16,000 in total, in exchange for working in NHS Scotland for up to four years. The scheme, administered by NHS Education for Scotland (NES), will offer ScotGEM students a bursary of £4,000 per student per annum in return for a year of service up to a maximum of four bursaries and four equivalent years of service . For students opting to participate, the ‘return of service’ arrangement will become effective at the beginning of year one of their foundation training.
