There has been a recent surge of overseas trainees arriving in the U.K. and applying for clinical attachments. Most of these doctors have obtained the Professional and Linguistic Assessment Board (P.L.A.B.) certificate prior to seeking training posts. The General Medical Council (G.M.C.) offers limited registration to trainees after obtaining a suitable post. After successful completion of a year, they can be considered for full registration. To avoid disappointments in fulfilling one's goals in career progression, a good understanding of the training system needs to be obtained before embarking on a difficult and often lengthy career path.
