Is there no chance for professionals that don’t live in Scotland to apply? If not, when do you think this criteria will be lifted?
Dear undergraduate medical admissions,
I am enquiring about my eligibility to apply for the HCP MBChB that is being introduced in 2019.
I have been working as a clinical pharmacist for the past 14 months and have since developed an interest in the medical profession through my experiences within clinical practice and voluntary commitments. However, the admissions webpage stipulates prospective applications being from healthcare professionals currently working in Scotland. Since I currently work in England, would this automatically exclude me from applying for the HCP MBChB programme; given that I would commit myself to working and living in Scotland if I went on to qualify?
Thank you for your email and your interest in studying with us.
I’m afraid as the information on our website suggests this programme is only open to those who hold a degree in a health-related profession who are currently practising in the NHS or a related organisation in Scotland.
I’m sorry if this is disappointing.
Seems like a fantastic idea. !
