We welcome international trainees and have a strong history of employing trainees from abroad, in particular from Australia and Europe. There are some requirements for working in the UK that you should be aware of – below are some useful websites and links to guide you on your next steps, but please don't hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
- To work in the UK, you need to be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC). If you are from the European Union, you are eligible for full registration with the GMC. If you are from outside the European Union, you need to have passed the PLAB (Professional and Linguistic Assessment Board) Tests, or get an exemption. This is the test the GMC uses to ensure international doctors have the basic medical competence and communication skills to practice in the UK
- Overseas doctors applying for GMC registration also need to demonstrate satisfactory knowledge of the English language. To do this they must meet certain requirements in the academic version of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
- If you currently live outside the UK, you may require a work visa. Information on this can be obtained from the Home Office website
- Health Education England (HEE) is an NHS body which has a useful webpage with relevant information
- NHS Employers also has a very good website for international medical graduates, including a downloadable guide
