International Trainees and Surgeons

The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS) is committed to providing comprehensive information about the choices available to medical graduates and doctors wishing to train and work in the UK.

Whether training or working as a surgeon in the UK, you will need to consider three main factors:

  • GMC registration
  • appropriate visas/permission to work
  • securing a post

Information about all of these is provided in this section. However, we strongly recommended that you obtain advice on immigration and visa requirements directly from the Home Office as all applications are determined on a case-by-case basis.

You should also visit our International section which includes further details on both the support we provide for international surgeons wishing to work here, and our work around the world.
