Medical Training Fellowship for overseas doctors
The National Health Service (NHS) is the government funded health service that serves the residents of the United Kingdom. It is funded through taxation and is free at the point of care.
The NHS has always prided itself on teaching and training not only home grown doctors but also doctors from beyond its boundaries. These doctors often work in the UK and carried the knowledge, the values and practice of medicine back to their country.
You can seek post graduate opportunities in several ways. However the rules around visas and applications and interviews have become very complex and often difficult to navigate. The requirement for examinations, visas, GMC registration and starting often pose formidable challenges to a candidate applying from abroad.
This website is not an immigration portal. It does not simplify what you have to do. You still have to go through the process of gaining GMC registration. This website only supports you and provides advice every step of the way.
For the doctor who wants to do a few years training in the UK and then consider future opportunities, this is a golden opportunity to do so.
