Following on from our previous posting on Oban, the BBC aired the first of a new series called "Town" last night. The first program featured Oban and can be viewed on iPlayer until June 19th.
The Lorn and The Islands Hospital in Oban features in our 3 and 4 year Caledonian programs and we hope to include it in our rural Programs in future years. Oban offers some great opportunities for exploring the Inner and Outer Hebrides along with more outdoor opportunities closer to home in the form of kyaking, sailing, cycling and hillwalking as highlighted in the program.
There are 3 posts on offer in Oban in the current Round 2 of recruitment so why not take the plunge and come and enjoy both the life and training opprotunities offered in Oban, "Gateway to The Isles"

We have a wide range of options open to you. Our 4 year programs offer a broad range of hospital posts including spells in our Rural General Hospitals that provide excellent training environments with a high degree of autonomy backed up by close support from your supervising consultant.
Or why not have a look at our Rural Track Program with the opportunity to train in Orkney, Caithness or Fort William. Have a look at our trainee blogs to see what existing trainees think of their training in the North of Scotland

The BBC have produced a 4 part series on the wildlife of the Hebrides, "Islands On The Edge". The series, narrated by Ewan McGregor, is currently being aired on Monday evenings on BBC1 Scotland with repeats on Sunday afternoon. The first episode was shown this Monday and you can catch it on iplayer for the next 4 weeks.
So have a look at the fantastic wildlife of the west coast of Scotland, all of which can be on your doorstep if you join our Rural or Caledonian Programs. Many of the Inner Hebridean Islands can be reached by ferry from Oban where Lorn and The Islands Hospital hosts posts for both of these programs.
