A Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh International Medical Graduate Sponsorship Scheme (IMGSS) was open to suitably qualified international medical graduates to come to the UK for a limited period of training in a surgical specialty.
The scheme offered sponsorship to doctors for the purposes of registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) without taking the PLAB test and for sponsorship under the Department of Health's Medical Training Initiative Scheme (MTI).
