International Medical Graduates
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 EEA. This term also includes UK citizens who have trained in medical schools outside the UK and EEA, and overseas doctors who have trained in a UK medical school, but do not have the rights of residence.
During 2008 and 2009 the UK Border Agency introduced a new points-based system which replaced most of the existing work-based categories. Please check here (http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/) for further information and an explanation about which category of visa will apply to you.
