The GP part of this Career Start post will be based at Maryfield Medical Centre in Dundee.  The post will be shaped around the individual applicant as part of their job plan and the applicant will have input into this process.

INVESTING IN YOU

The purpose of the scheme is to consolidate and develop the skills and confidence of recently qualified GPs, offering the opportunity to develop experience and skills to meet the needs of the GP of the future within a supportive environment. Overall the scheme aims to support the development of GP's as leaders who have a strong commitment to the values and vision of NHS Tayside, working as an integral part of a multi-disciplinary team across a single system to support our population to live longer, healthier lives at home.

The Career Start GP will work in a host practice developing both general and specific skills relevant to General Practice work. This will include all duties normally carried out in practice, including the opportunity to attend practice meetings, helping to gain further understanding of general practice as a business.

In addition to a named GP in practice, a Clinical Supervisor will be appointed in your specialist area to help you determine your specific educational objectives. To support your leadership journey, you will also have the opportunity to be matched with a patient safety fellow, learning more about quality and safety, and joining the rapidly growing network with opportunities for regional, national and international development in this area.

You should be educated to MBChB or equivalent, fully registered with the GMC with a licence to practice, and hold a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or equivalent. Excellent communication skills, counseling and feedback skills are also essential as well as the ability to travel to various locations.
