The Glasgow Clyde Southward programme comprises sixteen friendly and enthusiastic GP training practices following the Clyde from Paisley to Largs. Trainee feedback has been very positive suggesting high achievement, good support from trainers and staff in both hospital and general practice posts and a surprisingly easy and scenic commute from the city of Glasgow.
Innovations from this group include the opportunity to be involved in Practice Based Small Group Learning Groups, Structured Case Analysis and small group work with a wide range of highly experienced facilitators. This programme gives the opportunity to see a diverse patient population in a vibrant mix of both urban and rural settings. Glasgow and Clyde would welcome applications from trainees of all backgrounds and encourage you to join our dynamic group. Scroll down to meet us all…
