Associate global director for international medical graduates
Dr Anu Trehan is the RCP clinical lead for international medical graduates (IMGs) who are selected for an RCP Fellowship within the UK to come and train and develop their skills here. They use these skills to improve patient care globally.
Dr Trehan studied at medicine at Manchester University and became a consultant acute physician in 2008 at Salford Royal Hospital. She obtained a dual CCT in renal and general medicine and gained her MD in that same year from the University of Manchester.
Alongside her work as a consultant acute physician, she developed a second specialist career in medical education. She wanted to use her experience to help international doctors in the UK as well as developing her own skills and furthering her understanding of how medical education and clinical services are delivered in other countries.
Over the next 12 months Dr Trehan’s focus will be on developing the MTI scheme further by utilising digital resources to support training. The team are also working to incorporate a series of leadership training modules for those enrolling in the scheme as a means to support the development of future global leaders.
