Toparlak, S. (2021). My journey into mental healthcare as an international medical graduate (IMG). BJPsych International, 1-2.
Over half of doctors who joined the General Medical Council's (GMC) medical register in the UK in 2020 were from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background, and I am one of them. Having experienced clinical settings across three different countries, I think my journey deserves to be shared with others as a unique experience. My story will help medical students and early career doctors have a general idea of different clinical settings and hopefully will encourage them to chase their dreams. I hope to inspire people
