Hello, I'm a US citizen finishing up my 4 year undergraduate degree in the US. Recently I've discovered the horror of the loan situation I could be facing by going to a US medical school (300k + interest during residency, etc). This is problematic for me because I currently interested in the less lucrative fields of medicine. I'm also open to working in either the US or Europe.
I was wondering, if I got my MD at a reputable university in Poland, for instance, would I be able to work in the UK afterward? What would I need to do in terms of the licensing process; I understand the USMLE process for the US, but I can't find much concerning the UK.
I am currently applying for a Polish passport, so I'll have the EU citizenship ironed out before all this hopefully. I was wondering what I could expect in terms of employment if I didn't go back to America. Could I work in the UK or are their residency (or equivalent) spots mostly reserved for UK-trained students? Will I be hard-pressed to "get in" the system being an outsider and all? If not, is the job market in the UK for doctors very good if you're licensed?
Sorry for the barrage of questions, but I could use some of your wisdom on this matter. I would appreciate any help you could give me.
