My name is Ibi, Welcome to my blog. I am a trust grade core trainee in General Surgery (you will quickly learn that a good number of these fancy titles translate to Senior House Officer).
This blog is designed to support your smooth transition. I will be telling you about my experience as an international medical graduate joining the UK healthcare work force. I will talk about decisions and choices when job searching. I will talk about preparing for appraisals, dealing with cultural shock, oriel, coping with technology and preparing for training. Basically, I will tell you everything I have learnt, that I think can make your life easier career wise. On the flip side, we’ll talk about other important things, like driving tests, investment choices, buying your first car, home, choosing a place to live if you have little ones, your first visa renewal etc.

This blog shares my experience as well as the experiences of my friends. I have had the privilege of having kind people to light my path, this has made my journey easier. I hope the information I share on this page also makes someone else’s journey easier.

Finally as a disclaimer, the information here is useful for guidance only. Take your time to research things yourself as rules tend to change from year to year.
