Application criteria

Admission criteria

The programme is open to all international postgraduate medical trainees, sponsored either by their government or another recognised sponsoring body.

Applicants will usually be expected to have between three to five years’ experience in their speciality. They will also need to demonstrate their competency against QEHB’s standards.

Fellows must also satisfy the GMC’s language requirements for English. This requires an average score of at least 7.5, with a score of at least 7.0 in each area (speaking, listening, reading and writing) under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Alternatively, applicants may be registered with the GMC, be eligible for registration or be in a position to apply for registration with the assistance of QEHB.

Application process

Recruitment to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) International Fellowship programme is managed with the support of an applicant’s overseas employer, government or other sponsoring body.

Once the overseas organisation has approved doctors for consideration for the programme, CVs should be sent to the International Office.


The CV will be reviewed by the International Team and QEHB’s relevant speciality consultant.

Applicants will be notified directly/via their overseas organisation of the acceptance or otherwise of their application.
