HEAR IT FROM ME


Hundred’s of flights, daunting exams and sleepless nights later, finally I was a doctor….I think?

I could tell you 20 causes of heart failure on the cardiology ward round but didn’t know how to create a ward list. Could explain the biophysics behind a cannula but didn’t know how to actually put one in. I may write a prescription for paracetamol in Latin, but was completely clueless on how to do it in English.

Six years of hard work were reduced to feelings of inadequacy and embarrassment in the first six days of my job.

Due to vast differences in healthcare systems, culture and the roles of healthcare professionals, many International Medical Graduates (IMG’s) have found the transition from student to doctor to be a particularly challenging process. Having personally endured and overcome these challenges myself, I am acutely aware about what this “unprepared transition” period can do to a doctor’s confidence and well-being.

Whilst studying abroad, it is easy to feel out of the loop with what is going on in the United Kingdom medical community. I created this space to keep you clued in and get a head start in preparing for job applications, interviews and ultimately a more confident start to your career.

I hope to achieve this using the following methods:

  • One-to-one or Group online mentoring workshops. Tailored to develop your CV, interview skills and overall understanding of your role as a junior doctor, improving your chances of getting a job and starting it right!
  • Links to educational resources. Used by medical students and doctors in the United Kingdom to help you start your careers on a more level playing field.
  • Webinars and Courses to put your skills and knowledge into practice.
  • Podcasts with successful IMG’s and doctors who share their experiences and opportunities for collaborations.
    …and much more!

It is extremely rewarding to be able to support the unsung dedication, perseverance and resilience of our jet-setting community.

I hope you find this site useful and I would really appreciate any comments or feedback.
