About us

We are the Medical Training Initiative

The Medical Training Initiative (MTI) scheme allows international doctors to come to the UK to train within the National Health Service (NHS).

Suitably qualified International Medical Graduate doctors (IMG) can receive a maximum of two years training and development in the NHS. The knowledge, skills and techniques learned in that time can be used to improve patient care in their home country on their return.
