Little steps towards the dream
When I was planning to move in to UK, I was not aware of any help group in facebook. We gathered bits and pieces of informations from our seniors, but there were thousand bubbles of questions hidden inside brewing from uncertainty to leave own comfort zone.
With all ifs and buts, we managed to pull through the endeavour of reaching and starting work in NHS. We had no idea how the pay structure was, what to look for before taking up a job, what is relocation fees, how would be the expenditure – we literally had no clue. All I knew was there is a thing called training post and we have to achieve that !
One fine morning, I was browsing the internet to gather as much information about ST3 as I could with my friend Mouni Faria and got a website called http://www.st3recruitment.org.uk. This website pretty much explains everything you need to know about training program. We were quite unpleasantly surprised that how come we had no idea about this website, we could have brought all the necessary documents from bangladesh before we moved in. That was the day we planned to start this group.
I believe in finding solution of the problem, rather than analysing the root of it.When I see hospital full of doctors from different nationalities, I felt we are outnumbered not because of talent, mainly as a result of lack of information, decisive attitude, apprehension to move into a new place and most importantly, lack of appropriate guidance to get the head start.
This is now a group of thousands of members with different aspirations but one thing makes us united and that is our urge to help each other in the best possible way with all the correct information we have. I thank every single person wholeheartedly who is asking question and those who are coming up with extremely helpful solutions.
Thank you so very much for being with us. On a positive note, lets change our views because together we conquer ❤

Dear Faria, thank you so much for the question. If you explain the gap appropriately ( maternity/ exam prep/ career break etc), it should not cause a trouble. Thanks for following Planyourpostgraduation.com 🙂
Sir. I recently finished my internship. Now working as a lecturer of anatomy. But want to go abroad. Which one is better PLAB OR AMC.
Dear Dr Afroze, you probably need to make up your mind which country you want to settle in. Plab is for UK and AMC for Australia and the choice is yours. Thanks for following Planyourpostgraduation.com 🙂
I want to gather as much information as I can for pursuing a PG in any medical field. Also, can I study any surgical field eg., Gynaecology in UK. I would complete my MBBS from India.
Hi Sipra, we are writing and compiling as much 1st hand experience as possible. Hope to be able to complete the website soon. Yes you can do surgical specialties – general surgery, Gynae and Obs, if you prepare well with an enriched CV. You might find few helpful posts in the website. Thanks for following Planyourpostgraduation.com. Good Luck 🙂

Thanks Dr Rijvee. You have to clear either PLAB or MRCP to be eligible to work in the UK. Do read PLAB/ MRCP / GMC section of this website. If you want to do MSc in respiratory medicine, thats different from clinical practice. Please read through the MSc section of the website. Thanks for following Planyourpostgraduation.com
