Welcome to the General Practice Specialty Training (GPST) Website for South East Scotland

East Lothian 1: North Berwick Pano ZK

Why choose the South East of Scotland as a place to live?

The region offers an attractive choice of places to live and work - from the bustle of Scotland's capital and international "Festival City" to the rural settings of Fife and the Borders. Transport links from Edinburgh to the rest of Scotland and further afield are well developed making the Scottish Borders, Perthshire and the Scottish Highlands easily accessible opening up a wide range of opportunities for outdoor activities. Why choose the South East of Scotland as a place to train? Don't just take our word for it, see what the people who know best - our trainees and recent CCT holders - have to say!


On these pages you find information about:

  • The opportunities for GP trainees in the South East of Scotland and the programmes we have available
  • How to become a trainer
  • Educational resources developed in the South East of Scotland - the super condensed curriculum guides

We are currently developing a new virtual learning environment to be used by trainees which will shortly be available from NES Moodle.
