Venue: West One De Vere Conference Centre, London

As an international Doctor the transition to the NHS is not always an easy one. Different cultures, practices and structures can all represent barriers to effective working and patient care. This conference focuses on the important issue of supporting International Doctors in the NHS, from recruitment and induction to ongoing support. This conference aims to improve support for International Doctors working in the NHS.

“A third of doctors on the medical register today gained their qualifications outside the UK, improving the diversity of the profession, filling specialty shortages and bringing a fresh approach to healthcare.”

British Medical Association

“The NHS is dependent on IMG doctors (international medical graduate) to provide a high quality, reliable and safe service to patients. They enrich the NHS with their skills, enthusiasm and diverse perspectives and have become essential members of the UK’s medical workforce.“
