International Medical Graduates on Employment Authorisations (Work Visas)

IMGs who are funded by an outside government may be accepted into residency programs upon entering a contractual agreement with the University. This agreement requires that the sponsoring agency pay a yearly tuition fee to the University and a salary to the trainee which is in keeping with the PAIRO-OCOTH agreement. At the conclusion of training, the trainee is expected to return to his country of origin.
