The infographic below (first published in Aug 2017) shows the pathway for non-UK doctors who apply for a UK post. The scheme, administered by the RCSEd, helps non-UK doctors to obtain registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) without taking the PLAB test, and to get sponsorship under the Department of Health's Medical Training Initiative.
