The RCS is committed to providing clear information about the choices available to those wishing to work and train in the UK.
The arrangements for international doctors wishing to train in surgery in the UK have undergone significant changes over the past few years. Some of these changes relate to work permits, which affect all International doctors, and other changes relate to the arrangements for training in surgery.
Information about working in the UK is outlined on this website. However, we strongly recommended that you obtain advice on immigration and visa requirements directly from the Home Office as all applications are determined on a case by case basis and every case is different.
