Doctors Programme

Doctors Programme

All doctors who wish to work in the UK must be registered with and hold a licence to practise issued by the medical regulator, the GMC (General Medical Council). They must also have their qualifications verified by Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (EPFMG) – Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC).

Bridges Programmes offers end to end support through this process!

All participants receive a designated Case Worker
Assistance with your Medical Portfolio
We offer Advanced English classes, delivered by City of Glasgow College and Glasgow Clyde College (dependant on English level). These classes are tailored to suit the examination you choose to take, either IELTS or OET. 
We provide support and training for OET, in partnership with Live Language
IELTS - You must provide the GMC with an IELTS report number and show:
-that you took the academic version of the test
-that you got a score of at least 7.0 in each testing area and an overall score of 7.5
OET - you must achieve at least Grade B in all four sub-tests of Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

This contains all training required for GMC registration, including: your journey there and what you need to do and have; modules for PLABs 1 and 2, and medical English modules.
