Training expanded for overseas doctors27th February 2009
Health Minister Ann Keen has announced an increase in training placements for overseas doctors.
She says that the Medical Training Initiative, which will provide up to 750 two-year placements for doctors from developing countries, will greatly benefit the NHS. The figure is up from last year’s 250 placements for English-speaking doctors from developing countries. The Department of Health has been working closely with the BMA, the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin and NHS Employers over the extension of the scheme.
