Would appreciate some words of wisdom from any and all informed persons out there. Allow me to give some background info.
I am a dual citizen (USA/HUN) --- I just got accepted to the English language medical program here in Budapest at Semmelweis.
My goal is to practice medicine in the States and I would like to get there as quickly and efficiently as possible.
What are the possibilities with regard to transferring from Semmelweis after one year to another med school in:
the UK and/or Ireland?
the Carib. (Big 3)?
A couple reasons for this. (Please feel free to illuminate me should my reasoning be wrong.)
1) Semmelweis is a 6 year program. If I can transfer to a 4-year program (assume I start as a 1st year there) - I still have saved one year.
2) The Carib Schools and State school teach to the USMLE. The others, (I assume) also have better reps. than Hungary.
3) I am assuming that education/training is better in the aforementioned places than here in Hungary.
Some random questions:
Any advantage in applying to any of these schools as a US citizen as opposed as a Hun.-EU citizen or vica versa?
If I were to stay here in Hun. for the full 6 years, I am thinking about doing a MS or Ph.d in Biochem or a related field. Would that make me a stronger candidate in the future for the match? in the job market?
Looking forward to hearing...er...reading your thoughts.
Please let me know if there are any errors in my assumptions.
