Important information: The MTI scheme has been set up to facilitate UK clinical training opportunities for a small number of international medical graduates. This scheme is in no way a route to settlement in the UK as you will be required to leave the UK at the end of your training under the requirements of the Tier 5 visa category. Acceptance to the MTI scheme does not guarantee placement at a UK hospital, and those accepted may have to undergo a second interview with the hospital and will have a probationary period built into their contract.
