FPD/TPD/APGD Induction

Welcome to Scotland Deanery. We have prepared 2 videos which we hope gives you a flavour of the deanery work.  

One is specifically for programme directors (foundation and specialty including GP) and the other are some reflections from our Associate Postgraduate Deans.


We hope to continue to build these resources and would welcome feedback and suggestions for induction material to help you undertake your roles.
