Medical Training Initiative (Paediatrics)

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has developed the MTI(P) scheme to enable non-UK/EEA paediatricians, with MRCPCH or other postgraduate qualifications, to undertake high-quality postgraduate training in paediatrics for a maximum of 24 months, before returning to work in their home countries.

What are the benefits to candidates?

Working in an RCPCH-approved clinical setting, the successfully appointed International Fellows will undertake a range of clinical training, exposing them not only to the specified area of paediatrics offered, but also to child protection, safe prescribing and medico-legal practice, whilst being encouraged to engage in reflective practice and coaching/mentoring.

The scheme will provide the MTI(p) Fellow with the opportunity to enhance and develop skills across a range of areas including leadership and management, developing guidelines, conducting audit and research, and understanding of clinical governance, whilst working in an environment where a patient-centered approach is the main focus.

The RCPCH is committed to providing a training opportunity which benefits both the Fellow, their home country and the NHS units in which they will be working.

What type of posts will be offered?

Posts will be offered at a 'middle grade' level, equivalent in standard to Level 2 of the UK ST training curricula. After a period of three to six months induction at a more junior levels  it is expected that candidates will progress sufficiently to spend the remaining 18-21 months working at a more senior level.
