International Medical Graduates

The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine welcomes International Medical Graduates (IMGs) from around the world who are interested to work or train in Intensive Care Medicine in the UK.

IMGs should have a clear understanding of the opportunities available and good knowledge of the immigration processes and requirements of working in the UK. A clear understanding of the ICM training programme in the UK and the ICM curriculum will help the IMGs compare their qualifications, experience, skills and competencies with the UK training scheme.


The NHS employers have developed a web-based guidance, originally published in 2010 and updated in 2014, which is free to download and is aimed primarily at overseas-qualified medical and dental practitioners.

Similarly, the British Medical Association has published guidance for IMGs.
