  • discover the information, resources and support IMGs can expect their employing Trust to offer them and their families before and after they arrive in the UK
  • consider some potential challenges for a doctor moving into a new linguistic, cultural and professional environment
  • reflect on personal and professional learning needs and identify ways to meet these
  • locate additional learning resources
