Training programme for medical graduates

Thiruvananthapuram: The Thiruvananthapuram Medical College Alumni Association in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is offering training to medical graduates in some of the best hospitals in the U.K.

The RCP, as part of the Medical Training Initiative Scheme (MTI), has invited applications from medical graduates to undergo a fully paid two-year clinical training programme in the U.K. National Health Service (NHS).

This is an option available to those who have passed Part I of the MRCP examination. They will now get an opportunity to complete Part II (practical training) of the MRCP in the U.K. itself.

The partnership between the association and the RCP had resulted in the medical college here becoming a training centre for the prestigious MRCP programme.

The Medical Training Initiative (MTI) is a national scheme of the U.K. designed for medical graduates from Third World countries. It supports the U.K.s international development objectives and helps foster exchange programmes between NHS and overseas organisations.
