We are seeking experienced GP’s who can provide credible clinical mentorship, ideally with an interest in medical education to work with ScotGEM. ScotGEM is an innovative postgraduate entry medical programme, employing a case based approach to learning. It is a 4-year course that has been commissioned by the Scottish Government with a specific remit to widen access to medicine and promote generalist careers in under-served, especially rural areas. The universities of St. Andrews and Dundee are leading this development in conjunction with the University of Highlands and Islands, NHS Boards in Fife, Dumfries & Galloway, Highland and Tayside. Fifty-five students commenced in September 2018 and we are now recruiting students and staff for 2019-20. 

As a Year 2 Generalist Clinical Mentor you will have primary responsibility for a small student group (5-7 students) both in your host GP practice and at a regional clinical teaching facility. In addition, you will facilitate your group during student-led “agents of change” projects and teach your students during a bespoke “patient journey/emergency care” block for six weeks at the end of second year. An extensive staff development programme is
included in the induction period.

You will be a self-motivated, practicing GP, working in or willing to work at least two GP clinical sessions in an approved ScotGEM host GP practice; either in an existing role or as a salaried GP. In your application (if you are already a GP within the area) please include details of how you would incorporate the GCM teaching days with your current clinical commitments. Please include this information in the section “Statement in Support of Application”.
