Once the MTI applicant notifies the RCR of their arrival to the UK, an eportfolio application form is sent to the applicant to be completed and sent back to the training administrator. Once received the applicant is set up with a Kaizen account. Kaizen is the RCR's online e-portfolio platform used by trainees, supervisors and ARCP panel members to record progression through training and provide supervision to trainees. The Educational Supervisor is required to complete three appraisals per year: an annual induction, a mid-year review, and end of year review. Please visit our Kaizen webpage for further support.
If you would like to become a member of the RCR and benefit from access to early booking for the exams and reduced pricing (compared to non-members), plus other benefits such as events, journals, training resources and more, please visit our membership page for more information, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further support.
The AoMRC has produced a relocation guide to give international doctors some general advice about moving to the UK. The guide aims to cover some of the key things that the applicant and their family (if applicable) will need to arrange and may find useful such as banking, accommodation, healthcare, and culture.
The GMC provides a range of information for doctors on the medical register including how to manage your registration. The GMC also runs a free Welcome to UK practice workshop for doctors new to the UK.
The RCR will periodically check with the employer and the applicant as to how the placement is progressing. This is an opportunity for the MTI trainee and supervisor to let us know how they are getting on with the placement.
Changes to the post or employment of the MTI doctor
The RCR agree to sponsorship on the understanding that MTI applicants will complete their placements and return to their home country at its conclusion. Any changes to the agreed post must be taken up with the RCR before they are implemented. A failure to do so may compromise our sponsorship and consequently the applicant's immigration status. The UK employer must report any exceptions to the doctor’s employment terms and conditions e.g. resignation, dismissal, unexplained absence to the Academy by completing the MTI exception report.
End of the placement
Two weeks prior to the end of the placement, the RCR will confirm with the UK Supervising Consultant and MTI applicant that the placement is coming to an end and things are in hand for the doctor to return to their home country. When the placement comes to an end the hospital must complete the MTI exception report and send this to the AoMRC at email@example.com and the applicant should return home.
