This forum has answered a lot of the questions I've had, but I haven't come across a thread that talks about the actual possibilities of living and working in the UK/Ireland after graduation from a medical school. As an American who could probably get into a medical school in the United States, I have a lot of people looking at me strangely when I tell them I want to go to medical school in Europe. I want to do so because I've lived in London for 6 months and travelled all around Europe, and I like it much more than the US. My questions are as follows:
1) Is it really hard for an American to get into medical school in the UK/Ireland simply because they're an American?
2) After graduation from a UK/Irish medical school, is it possible for a "non-EU" citizen to get licensed and get a job in the UK/Ireland/Europe?
Essentially, I'm trying to move to Europe, and I also want to be a doctor. I would like to kill two birds with one stone, if it's possible. ANY info or websites that can help me with these issues will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
