I want to apply for cardiology, does IMG is eligible for applying IMT for cardiology? What things that the IMG need to prepare in order get enrolled? If IMG cannot get in 1st round for IMT, then is it available for Round2 ?Thank you so much

You can apply for cardiology after you finish IMT for 3 years. Internal Medicine Training is the “core” training for any and all un-coupled medical specialties, like cardiology, for example.
Cardiology training will be available for you apply for after completion of IMT. And an IMG can’t apply in round 1 of IMT if they don’t have proper immigration status.

What is the duration of General Internal Medicine training according to new IMT?
- December 9, 2018 at 12:43 PM #3402
@vikram-singh07 General (Internal) Medicine was itself a 3 years specialty training from ST3 to ST5. Now that IMT has been instated, I don’t think the ST3 year will be included in IMT, rather the whole training will be increased to 6 years total (IMT 3 years + ST 3 years).
We can only speculate at this moment.

Are you planning on applying to Internal Medicine round 2 in Feb 2019? How important is the fact that the person should have completed audit / research for IMGs?

Is it necessary to go for the Stage 2 training? I mean if an individual has completed his IM 1 to 3 training then what jobs he can get in the UK Healthcare system? Kindly reply

After IMY3, you are technically the medical registrar.
To see from an angle, it’s not even necessary to go for training at all if you have MRCP completed from home country to start with medical registrar jobs. With a primary introduction to the NHS as an SHO for a couple of years, you can apply for medical registrar level jobs and continue as registrar without ever going for training.
Many chose this route when it was pretty difficult to get into training. Now a days it’s not, so there is no reason why you won’t go for further speciality training.

I have completed my MRCP. I wish to get in to competitive specialties like cardiology and gastroenterology. What do you think i should do? Start from IMT?
- April 21, 2019 at 6:05 PM #4266
It’s up to you. You have the option of just doing a non training job for some time, getting your core competencies signed, building your portfolio, and instead applying directly for ST3.

Is it too big a dream to get into IMT into one of the big trusts in London or Manchester? I am only eligible for round 2 due to RLMT
- April 21, 2019 at 6:05 PM #4265
You never know if a slot becomes available even in Round 2, so don’t hesitate to apply!

Thanks for this information, i plan to train in gastro enterology, can i apply for specialty post directly after passing my mrcps and paces instead of entering the IMT1-3 and also will i need ielts or oets valid to apply for this post.
Thanks in advance.
- April 21, 2019 at 6:04 PM #4264
Yes you can apply for ST3 directly so long as you ensure your core competencies have been signed off and that you have a strong portfolio.

On completion of IMT, would writing PACES be needed prior to commencement of specialist traininy? Thanks
