ISTP offer explained

The International Surgical Training Programme (ISTP) operates within the generic Medical Training Initiative (MTI) and provides non-EU/EEA doctors (also known as International Medical Graduates) with an opportunity to come to the UK to undertake specialist training within an NHS Trust for a maximum of two years.

 The programme enables the RCS to facilitate sponsorship for GMC registration and the supporting Tier 5 visa for overseas surgical trainees.

 Through the ISTP, overseas surgeons have the opportunity to develop a wide range of transferable surgical and non-clinical skills that will have a positive impact on their patients, colleagues and health systems in their home country.
