Foundation Doctor's Guide to East Scotland
The East region of Scotland Foundation School covers Dundee & Perth. Dundee, a coastal town, has recently had a huge injection of art funding, including the new Victoria & Albert museum which is a must to visit!
Ninewells Hospital, part of Dundee University, is the major tertiary centre in the region, specialising in cancer (especially leukaemia), genetics, robotic surgery & psychosurgery. Laparoscopic surgery was first introduced at Ninewells! A dedicated paediatric hospital, Tayside Children’s Hospital, is a located on the Ninewells site too.
Scotland is one Foundation School but split into 4 separate regions: East, North, South East & West. Most of the spots available are in the West (around Glasgow) & South East (around Edinburgh).
