Induction for International Doctors
The Induction for International Doctors programme is a web-based educational resource developed by Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) in partnership with HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH), to introduce internationally qualified doctors, who are new to UK clinical practice, to ethical, social, legal and professional aspects of UK clinical practice. The programme has a number of interactive e-learning sessions produced by CMFT, along with a number of sessions taken from other e-LfH programmes which supplement the focus of the programme.
Sessions include case-based scenarios and are intentionally generic in content, thereby making them useful for doctors of any specialty and grade. It is expected that this e-learning programme will act as a driver for new international doctors to commence a focussed discussion with their educational supervisors, to develop professional development plans and to undertake additional training as per their specialty/local needs.
