Postgraduate Training (Residency) Pathway: An in-depth guide for IMGs

Getting into your desired postgraduate training is one of the ultimate steps of your journey to become a doctor in the UK. As an International Medical Graduate (IMG) , it is often very difficult to grasp the UK Medical Education and Postgraduate Training pathway from the get go.

The delay may lead to frustration; or sometimes the hurry leads to dissatisfaction.

So, striking a balance between the two is the key. Post-graduate training is competitive and also a big commitment in your career. Therefore, it is unwise to jump into training without knowing your pathway in and out. That’s where we are here to help.
