Scottish Community-Orientated Medicine (ScotCOM)
The medical school at the University of St Andrews is currently developing a brand new 5-year community-orientated MBChB Medicine programme and it is hoped that the first cohort will enter in 2025.
We are currently unable to provide full information about the programme, but details will be available via this webpage when particulars are finalised, subject to General Medical Council approval.
BSc Honours programme
A 3-year BSc honours degree programme offering an integrated curriculum within a strong clinical context. In addition to exploring the foundations of medical science the programme encourages the development of the professional attitudes, ethical understanding and decision making skills required by the GMC's 'Outcomes for graduates'.
Graduates of the BSc Hons Medicine can progress on to one of the University's partner medical schools to complete their training as a doctor.
Scottish Graduate Entry Medicine (ScotGEM)
A 4-year graduate entry programme capitalising on the existing strengths of medical teaching in the universities of St Andrews and Dundee in collaboration with NHS Fife, NHS Tayside, NHS Highland, NHS Dumfries and Galloway and the University of the Highlands and Islands. This exciting partnership enables the development of a truly distinctive programme.
First and second year will be led by the University of St Andrews, with third and fourth year led by the University of Dundee. On graduation, students will gain a joint degree from both Universities.
