The College plays a matchmaking role by identifying spare training capacity within the NHS, and suitably qualified overseas surgeons through our overseas partner institutions to fill the posts.
All trainees are interviewed first by our Clinical Leads to assess their experience, clinical knowledge and communication skills before being accepted onto the programme.
The CVs and logbooks of candidates are then provided to recruiting trusts where they can then undertake their own shortlisting and interview processes.
Once an appointment is made, RCS England facilitates GMC registration and Tier 5 visa for the candidate, including obtaining HEE approval for the post.
The ISTP team support the trainee and employing trust throughout the placement and arrange induction sessions, ISCP-enrolment, rotations (if applicable) and the certificate of completion.
At the end of their placement, IMGs will return to their home country and be able to share the knowledge and skills obtained in the NHS for the benefit of their colleagues and patients.
