About the Event

Moving to a new country and starting a new job is a difficult and  stressful process. It is understandable that the main challenge facing  International Medical Graduates (IMGs) in the UK is working how to  engage with a new healthcare system and understanding the NHS culture.

The  aim of the workshop is to build on Trust Induction and provide  supplementary information to explore some of the challenges faced by  IMGs and share ways of working and available resources to help them  survive and thrive in their first job in the NHS.

The session is  delivered ‘by junior doctors, for junior doctors’ and all facilitators  have had first-hand experience of integrating into the UK and the NHS  system.

This event will include a half day course delivered by the  GMC: Welcome to UK Practice. This is a mandatory course required for  those new to UK practice*

*Please note that the £30 charge does not go to the GMC for this event
