Apply for the Programme

Lincolnshire Refugee Doctor Project is excited to announce that we are now launching our programme.
We are looking to bring on our first cohort of doctors who would like the support and English training required to reach GMC registration. Our programme is due to start in October 2019.

We would like to assist as many doctors as possible but for the first year we will only be accepting ten doctors to ensure we are able to provide the support and assistance required.
