The University of Glasgow’s School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing is to launch an innovative scheme to equip selected medical students with the requisite skills and experience to become the next generation of leaders of primary care in Scotland. The new Community Orientated Medical Experience Track (COMET) will see medical students gain enriched and immersive exposure to primary care within both urban and rural settings.
