Edinburgh Medical School

Additional Cost of Teaching office (ACT)

The ACT office works with NHS Education Scotland and NHS boards to ensure that funding for teaching is allocated to all providers and the necessary service level agreements are in place.

The ACT office also works in liaison with the Centre for Medical Education to evaluate the MBChB curriculum. In turn, it reports to module organisers, NHS Board Directors of Medical Education and year directors on the student feedback collected online.

In addition, the ACT office administers a priority room booking system for teaching rooms at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
