MTI stands for Medical Training Initiative and is one way of allowing overseas doctors access to training in the UK. Applicants should have at least 3 years’ postgraduate clinical training and possess a postgraduate medical qualification – see MTI sections in the RCOA and RCP websites for more information on this. Application is facilitated by the Colleges to help with GMC registration and hospital trusts’ sponsorship on a tier 5 (2 year) visa.
