Free membership for doctors fleeing war in Ukraine

To help doctors fleeing conflict in war zones such as Ukraine, we are waiving the first year of MDU membership for those that come to practice in the UK.

If you will be residing in the UK, and are seeking work as a medical professional, you will need to register with the GMC first. Once registered, call 0800 716 376 to arrange MDU membership and ensure you are appropriately indemnified.

To be eligible for free MDU membership, you must be:

  • Newly registered with the GMC 
  • Working in an NHS indemnified role.

Free membership is applicable for the first year following GMC registration and excludes existing MDU members. Membership is already free for medical students so those fleeing war zones who continue studying medicine in the UK, are also encouraged to join. 

Our thoughts are with all those that have been affected by the war in Ukraine, and other areas of conflict around the world.
