CPSP International Training Program


Ensuring the highest quality standards of medical practice in Pakistan is at the heart of the vision of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan. Training, continuous professional development, audit and evidence based medicine are fundamental to the achievement of this aim.

CPSP believes that international exposure of a doctor during his/her postgraduate training will help deliver this vision. Many fellows and senior fellows have benefitted from the training they have received abroad and have formed life-long relationships.

The CPSP has therefore established a number of training positions at Russels Hall Hospital both a junior and senior level in order to give all eligible trainees and fellows an opportunity to train in an international environment.

The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust is running an innovative International Fellowship programme at Junior and Senior level on a fixed-term basis for 2 years.

The programme is designed to allow doctors to continue to develop a wide range of skills and competencies with an emphasis on the generic skills required for good medical practice and management of the acutely ill patient. The programme is varied with the intention of allowing candidates to gain experience in a wide range of specialties and be ready to progress to the next stage of their career.

These positions are funded by CPSP through a scholarship programme.
