Working and training in the NHS – a guide for international medical graduates

04 / 08 / 2014

This guidance was last updated in May 2015 and is currently under review. Please visit the relevant websites for the most up to date information.

This guidance is aimed primarily at overseas-qualified medical practitioners from outside of the European Economic Area. NHS organisations can use the guide for information as part of their recruitment and induction material.

The guide aims to make doctors and dentists from outside the UK aware of the opportunities available and to help them understand the immigration processes and requirements. It includes details of sources of further information and where to check for up-to-date details of immigration and other requirements.
