Over 150+ success stories! Here's what some of the doctors we supported have to say about us
The teaching was incredibly valuable, especially the group cardiac arrest simulation session.. it's also been really nice having someone you can turn to, especially for ongoing career advice and support
I can’t believe you have taken the time to organise this. I am so grateful. My clinical skills training was massively disrupted due to COVID-19. I'm honestly so grateful, without you guys I would never have had the opportunity to start working in the NHS at such an incredible Trust. Thank you!
I was so nervous to start as an FY1, but with support from the entire team I was working as an SHO within 6-months... we laugh about that now! I will always remember LinkMedics as an organisation I started my career as a doctor with.
As an overseas graduate I was scared I didn't have the clinical skills and knowledge to work in the NHS. LinkMedics put all of my worries to ease. The 4-weeks of induction before starting as a junior doctor really helped build my confidence, so that I can carry out my role responsibly.
I did not want to locum as I had never done a clinical attachment before and I did not feel comfortable. I saw the training day that Link Medics provided and I thought it would be a crash course in learning the required skills.
LinkMedics have had a pivotal role in helping me transition into NHS. They have a great team, who sets aside their busy work life as doctors to engage with us and make sure we are developing as much as we can through all the opportunities provided.
My experience so far has been great with LinkMedics, as my first permanent job in the NHS, it has helped me develop my skills in a busy specialty. The initial shadowing period that was organised was helpful. There have been online teaching sessions relating to portfolio building that has helped me understand how to structure my portfolio.
Since I am an international graduate that has studied overseas, there was always going to be an adjustment required to return back to the UK to work in the NHS. LinkMedics have provided an accessible and supportive route for IMGs, like myself, to find work in the NHS whilst also being supported in this role. The fact they have a shadowing period prior to the employment also helps ease the transition to working in the NHS, which can often be daunting.
I chose this programme as this was offering an amazing package and felt like they support doctors from abroad like me a lot more than recruitment agencies. I feel so much more confident in doing my practical skills and also I am used to the system and regulations. I am still learning new things everyday but I’m confident to learn things day by day.
Just want to thank LinkMedics - honestly feel blessed to get the help and support. Looking back I feel proud of the progress I’ve made, from being terrified to being happy at work!!! They have a friendly and approachable team of peers, with well planned and useful training sessions.
I was nervous and anxious to start working at NHS, as it is my official job as a doctor. But, with the help of LinkMedics I quickly adapted and improved. They were very clear and concise and have helped to prepared me on practical and clinical aspects of what to expect. The people working for LinkMedics are really helpful and they are always available if you need help.
Having thoroughly researched and talked to other peers who have applied through LinkMedics, I knew this programme would provide sufficient support and guidance as I start my first job in the NHS.
