Medical Training Initiative (MTI)

Medical Training Initiative (MTI)

The Medical Training Initiative (MTI) is designed to enable a small number of International Medical Graduates to enter the UK to experience training development in the NHS for up to two years before returning to their home country using training capacity not required for planned UK/EEA training numbers. Employers do not sponsor the scheme; instead they are approved by the LETB's / Deaneries and the relevant Medical Royal College.

We ask that potential MTI placements identified by a trust are provisionally sent to HEEoE for approval before a doctor has been appointed.  This eliminates the risk of disappointment if a placement cannot be approved by the Dean. The flow chart below shows the process between the trusts and the LETB.
