Apollo Hospitals Group introduces International Clinical Fellowship Programme

28 June 2022 | News

The three-year programme will lead to MCh/MMed degree in the UK

Apollo Education UK (AEUK) will launch the Apollo International Clinical Fellowship Programme (ICFP), 2022, as a part of its Global Workforce Development (GWD) initiative. Over the three-year ICFP programme, doctors (MS/MD/DnB) can ‘earn as they learn’, receiving mentorship from senior doctors at Apollo Hospitals, India, in a preparatory year to aid transition into NHS clinical practice before being placed in a UK hospital for the next two or more years, where they can complete their clinical learning. At the same time as gaining this international work experience in an area of speciality, doctors will study for a Master of Surgery or Master of Medicine degree at Edge Hill University. 

 

The Apollo ICFP is carefully structured to ensure that doctors get mentorship, world-class specialist clinical exposure and hands-on experience in providing the highest standards of healthcare. The programme is a collaboration between AEUK, Global Training and Education Centre (GTEC) at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and Edge Hill University, UK.

 

It is the latest initiative under the 'Apollo Knowledge' umbrella which is the Apollo Group’s skilling, training, education, and resourcing arm. This is part of AEUK’s Global Workforce Development (GWD) initiative, an education, skilling and placement programme for healthcare professionals, helping them broaden their horizons and receive training and work experience across geographies.
