International Medical Graduates (IMGs)

International Medical Graduates (IMGs) are an invaluable part of our Trusts workforce and  greatly contribute to the diverse teams we have within the hospital.  We recognise that transitioning into a different healthcare system presents unique educational and pastoral challenges. With this in mind, we are here to help support IMGs throughout their time at the Trust.

World Café Evenings

Snack Food

In June 2021 we hosted our very first World Café Event for IMGs with great success. These events are designed to allow IMGs, many of whom had experienced significant isolation as a result of the COVID pandemic, to form social connections with other IMGs. We now run these events quarterly; selecting a different cuisine to enjoy at each event and meeting at the Centre for a relaxed evening away from the hospital environment.


Please keep an eye on the 'PGME Courses and Events' tab on this website for upcoming World Café events and to register for our next evening.

"I enjoy making friendships and getting to know colleagues from different places and specialties. I think this is very important to support one another and keep Derriford IMG friendly"
