Clinical Attachments

HEIW is unable to arrange a clinical attachment for you.

You may also wish to refer to the Clinical Attachment Guidelines on the British Medical Association (BMA) website.

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.

Doctors who have trained in EU medical schools and have worked in the EU countries are considered separately in the UK as they have rights similar to UK trained doctors.
