International medical graduates

In the UK the term International Medical Graduates (IMGs) refers to overseas doctors and refugee doctors whose primary medical qualification is from a medical school outside the UK and EU. This term also includes UK citizens who have trained in medical schools outside the UK and EU, and overseas doctors who have trained in a UK medical school but do not have rights of residence.

The Wales Deanery has for many years worked on behalf of refugee doctors, who have fled persecution in their own countries to seek asylum in the UK, and who now wish to rebuild their careers here.
