General Medicine in the UK

Using their expertise in diagnosing, referring and dealing with complex medical problems, general medicine doctors in the UK manage patients with a variety of both acute and long term health issues.

As part of the acute medical care workforce, many doctors practising in GIM in the UK are also trained in another specialty or sub-specialty, such as:

  • Acute medicine 
  • Geriatrics
  • Gastroenterology
  • Respiratory 
  • Rheumatology
  • Diabeties and Endocrinology
  • Renal medicine 
  • Cardiology 

Across the UK, the number of hospital admissions continues to increase year on year. For this reason, general medicine doctors are in high demand at ST3 level and above, with many exciting opportunities available across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.


Working as a General Medicine Doctor in the UK: What’s required?

To work at ST3 level or above, you will need to complete the MRCP exam or PLAB. For most hospitals across the NHS, the MRCP would be the preferred qualification however, opportunities are also available for doctors via the PLAB route.

The GMC require doctors from countries where English is not the native language to provide evidence of their English language skills. This means passing either the OET or IELTS.

Doctors from within the EEA (European Economic Area), who have completed a postgraduate qualification in their home country, are able to use this qualification, accompanied with a pass in either OET or IELTS, to attain GMC registration.
