From day one, we support you and provide the training you need to succeed as a consultant.

There is some flexibility in timing and exceptions on start-dates and can be discussed on a one-off basis.
Candidates who complete the MD Scholar program successfully for at least one year will be granted one year of medical school tuition. Candidates who complete two years of the MD scholar program will receive one year of medical school tuition and six months tenure credit.
