A careers programme aimed at International Medical Graduates (IMGs) with an interest in surgical careers.

Endorsed and Sponsored by RCS England, it is an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) initiative aimed at improving access to Core Surgical Training (CST) for IMGs.

Mentorship

All 45 of our selected mentees have been allocated a near-peer surgical mentor to support their career, portfolio and professional development. Mentorship is delivered both one-to-one and in groups.
