Your most frequent questions answered

What are the basic requirements for an overseas doctor to work in the UK?

To work as a doctor in the UK, you must have a recognised primary medical qualification, a sufficient English language proficiency score (IELTS or OET), and pass the PLAB test or have an accepted postgraduate qualification. You must also obtain full registration with the General Medical Council (GMC).

How do I register with the General Medical Council (GMC)?

You need to apply online through the GMC website, providing proof of your medical qualification, English language proficiency, and passing the PLAB test or holding a recognized postgraduate qualification. You will also need to attend an identity check in the UK.

What is the PLAB exam, and how do I prepare for it?

The PLAB (Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board) exam assesses your ability to practice medicine in the UK. It consists of two parts: PLAB 1 (a written multiple-choice exam) and PLAB 2 (a practical Objective Structured Clinical Examination). Preparation typically involves extensive study of clinical subjects, taking practice exams, and possibly attending a PLAB preparation course.

Do I need a visa to work as a doctor in the UK, and how do I get it?

Yes, overseas doctors need a valid visa to work in the UK. Most will apply for a Tier 2 (General) visa, which requires a job offer and sponsorship certificate from a UK employer, such as an NHS trust. MMA will assist you with the visa after securing a job offer.

What kind of salary can I expect working as a doctor in the UK?

Salaries vary depending on your role, experience, and the region you work in. Junior doctors start at a basic salary of around £28,000 per year, which can increase to over £70,000 as you gain experience and take on more responsibilities. Consultants can earn much more, often exceeding £100,000 per year.
