It is with great pleasure that I announce the commencement of the BAPIO International Fellowship Programme in collaboration with the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh and Health Education England . This training initiative is designed specially to help International doctors gain experience at core and higher levels in UK hospitals.
BAPIO will select suitable candidates from institutions and medical schools on the subcontinent following recommendations from a potential applicant’s faculty.
Once the Indian doctors have gone through a period of specialist training in UK hospitals, they will return home to pursue their medical careers with enhanced skills and experience.
This training scheme will bring an added benefit to the NHS, as the Indian doctors will help fill vacant medical training posts in the NHS for a period of between two to four years.
BAPIO is delighted to have the collaboration with RCPE as the college will help provide quality assurance, monitor the education training and ensure that the International graduated gain maximum benefit from the programme.
These are exciting times ! India has more doctors than it can offer post graduate training and UK has vacant training spaces. Both countries can complement each other and learn a lot from each other.
I look forward in welcoming you all.
