RCGP accused of discriminating against ethnic minority candidates in MRCGP legal case


I am not sure re ''quality of undergraduate training in different countries '' . I would agree that methods of undergraduate training are different. For example IMG undergraduate trainees see real patients with real symptoms in undergraduate medical exams instead of talking to actors. I am not sure re ' the time elapsed between qualifying and sitting the CSA, which tends to be higher for IMGs ', this would actually be a positive point. More experience in other specialities makes you a all rounded GP which is needed now as more secondary services are being moved into primary care. GP with previous experience in areas like diabetes would be an asset. I am not sure re ' quality of candidates '. They are all selected through the same recruitment process.
