In the next few months, we anticipate there may be a number of Scholarships in the UK coming up.
In anticipation, we would strongly recommend that all interested trainees should complete their English
Competency Test. Those who have completed this test will receive priority when being selected for interviews.
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.
