Resources for doctors currently in the UK on the MTI scheme
MTI Booklet for new starters
The MTI booklet (PDF, 396 kb) contains advices for new doctors joining the scheme. Find out about the ways of adjusting to a new working environment, living in the UK and tips from previous MTI trainees on how to deal with problems you may encounter.
The Relocation guide (PDF, 4.1 mb) is created by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges which gives international doctors participating in the MTI scheme general advice about moving to the UK.
The guide is not exhaustive but it does cover some of the key things that you will need to arrange and may find useful to know when you move to the UK. It contains generic information which aims to cover all of your needs and those of your family (if applicable).
Guidance for MTI doctors
If you start to experience some issues within your placement the RCOG can offer pastoral support and guidance.
Support for MTI doctors from Sri Lanka
If you are from Sri Lanka, you can now contact the RCOG Sri Lanka Liaison Group Trainee Committee. This group has produced a small booklet for Sri Lankan MTI trainees and also offers a network system which allows you to contact a UK trainee at any time to talk about life in UK hospitals and other training issues. If you are interested, please contact the Trainee Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please read the frequently asked questions for people on MTI placements on the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) website.
