NHS Lothian is one of the largest and most successful teaching hospitals in Scotland and covers Edinburgh and the surrounding area. Not only do we successfully train medics from all over the UK and the world, but many choose to remain in employment with NHS Lothian and continue to contribute to the development of the organisation, promoting new techniques and go on to train the doctors and surgeons of tomorrow.


NHS Lothian is committed to providing a high standard of medical education and is able to offer training in a variety of specialties, with the majority of training posts in the South East of Scotland Deanery rotating through Lothian hospitals. 


We seek to provide specialist and general services fairly and efficiently in state-of-the-art buildings and our forward-looking and innovative approach gives our hospitals recognition as centres of excellence with clinical care, teaching and research a growing national and international reputation.
