Who are We?
The Phoenix Project is a charity that supports displaced doctors’ qualification to practice medicine in the UK, predominantly through English language teaching sessions. Our team is made up of 50+ medical students and junior doctors, and we are currently operating in Nottingham, Leeds, Bristol and Birmingham. So far, we have had 3 doctors successfully pass all exams required for GMC registration, and currently deliver 20+ hours of teaching a week.
“For no displaced doctor to go unsupported”
We exist to support the qualification of displaced doctors to practice in the UK, provide a warm welcome on behalf of the UK medical profession, and increase medical students and doctor’s engagement with issues affecting displaced communities.
The Phoenix Project aims to assist displaced doctors regain their professional identity and prospects.
Supporting the qualification of displaced doctors will provide our National Health Service with highly qualified and talented professionals, benefitting wider communities and the struggling National Health Service. As tomorrow’s doctors we want to be part of the solution to the staffing crisis facing the NHS.
Medical students and doctors should use their privileged position to act as allies to the displaced community. The Phoenix Project facilitates this by raising awareness of key issues faced by the displaced doctor community, and providing opportunities to medical students and doctors who wish to assist their fellow medics.
The Phoenix Project gives opportunities to people at the beginning of their professional journey, to enable them to develop their skills and professional identities.
