We have a highly successful MTI program that has run for a number of years in LPFT.

  • We support up to 7 MTI trainees each year to train and work in the United Kingdom and have an experience of psychiatry in the UK at the level of a ‘core trainee level 3 (CT3)’ for two years.
  • The culture within our trust is to celebrate diversity.
  • East Midlands is a great place to meet new people and undertake further psychiatry training in the UK. 
  • Our MTI trainees provide a vital contribution to LPFT life and we look forward to welcoming our new MTIs each year from all over the world.
  • Our MTI program has an excellent reputation.
  • Knowledge of our scheme has spread by word of mouth from previous trainees and remains popular with our applicants.

  • Suitable for psychiatrists who have qualified in their own country and who wish to further their expertise in psychiatry in the UK by acquiring additional skills in their own specialty or in a subspecialty.
  • Your role will be in line with a Core Trainee. 
  • We would advise reading through the core training section for more details on what we will be able to offer as part of your training experience.

  • Interested candidates can apply to join the scheme between October and January each year.
  • The eligibility criteria can be found on the RCPsych website as well as more information about the scheme.
  • In February/March of each year the RCPsych interview all eligible candidates to determine their suitability.
  • Successful candidates are provided with a certificate of sponsorship which allows them to complete their application with the GMC to join the medical register.
  • During March and April of each year MTI candidates and Trusts are “matched”.
  • Once all parties are in agreement, an application is made to the AoMRC who issue a Certificate of Sponsorship which allows the doctor to apply for a UK Tier 5 Visa.
