    How much stipend do residents earn while doing their post graduation in the UK?

    Advertisements



    I was not sure where to post this so i put it up here. I want to do my residency from a country where English is the primary language like USA,UK,Australia,etc. I know that residents in the USA earn anything between 35-60,000USD/year during their residency. I wanted to know the figures which residents earn in other countries like the UK.
    P.S.-I have not even started medical school yet. I start at the Debrecen university this fall. I know that this is thinking a bit too much too soon but please do humor me.

    By "Stipend" do you mean salary/pay because by "stipend" I assume that is what you mean.

    After you graduate , you serve 2 years to get your FULL GMC Medical Licence to practice in the UK.

    If you have intentions of going back to the USA or somewhere else , then you don't have to bother doing the 2 years at all. You can do your internship etc..... in the US or wherever and use that to practice here.

    But bear in mind , here in the UK , we will not give you help with the USMLE. You prepare for that yourself. But I am sure you know that. Providers like Kaplan can help you with that

    Anyway : The 2 years after graduation form what is called the Foundation Programme. You spend 1 year in your F1 Placement , this is where you get to practice in a clinical setting and are a doctor and whatnot. You get paid for this. After the F1 year you go into F2. This comes with a bit more pay and will give you a chance to choose your specialism.

    Then after your F2 year , you then go into whatever speciality and will be called a "Registrar" then after that you have a Consultant.

    But before we think of Consultant and Registrar , let's not jump before we can walk


    Hope this advice helps you

    Thanks for the reply mate(sorry for replying so late but i've been busy with getting settled in med school)!
    Let me explain my situation-I'm an Indian citizen and i'm studying medicine at the uni of Debrecen. After completing med school here, I'd like to go to an English speaking country to do my residency/post graduation. The US was my first option but I'm having second thoughts now after getting to know about the various legal issues that doctors have to face there. Which is why now my second option(UK) is now looking more and more like my only option. But I've heard that it has become nearly impossible for non-UK citizens to get a license in the UK over the last couple of years because of some changes in the immigration laws. I'm totally confused now. I'd love to practice in the UK but is it possible for me? Or should I just study for the USMLE and try to go to the US? I know its too early for a first year to think about all this but I gotta start studying for either the PLAB or the USMLE soon enough. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    According to the British medical recruiter I spoke with 48 hours ago, it is virtually impossible for non-EU citizens to get residency in the UK. The US would not be an easy option, but it is at least possible (but tough, because you need a visa). Currently, if you can speak German at the B-2 level, it is possible to get a residency in Germany as long as you can present yourself well and you know your stuff.

    Straight from the NHS website:

    Doctors in training

    Doctors in training earn a basic salary and will be paid a supplement if they work more than 40 hours and/or work outside the hours of 7am-7pm Monday to Friday.

    In the most junior hospital trainee post (Foundation Year 1) the basic starting salary is 22,636. This increases in Foundation Year 2 to 28,076. For a doctor in specialist training the basic starting salary is 30,002. If the doctor is contracted to work more than 40 hours and/or to work outside 7am-7pm Monday to Friday, they will receive an additional supplement which will normally be between 20% and 50% of basic salary. This supplement is based on the extra hours worked above a 40 hour standard working week and the intensity of the work.

    Specialty doctor and associate specialist (2008) (SAS doctors)

    Doctors in the new specialty doctor grade earn between 37,176 and 69,325.

    Consultants

    Consultants can earn a basic salary of between 75,249 and 101,451 per year, dependent on length of service. Local and national clinical excellence awards may be awarded subject to meeting the necessary criteria.
