British schools do not accept US students. There is a very strict British policy stating that they will not accept students from countries with adequate medical education systems.Could you please give me some info about "British Schools accepting North American Students

[quote="bts4202"]Isn't there a huge demand for Doctors in the UK? I remember I was in Hong Kong last year and I managed to chat to a young UK medical student who told me that there is such a need, that there was going to be a proliferation of new medical schools in the UK within the next few years.British schools do not accept US students. There is a very strict British policy stating that they will not accept students from countries with adequate medical education systems.
I'm also interested to know which medical schools in the UK, if there are any, accept american students.

I got into Leicester...so it should be possible for US students.
Hi. I spoke with Royal College in Ireland this week & learned that: Foreign student spots are severly restricted - only a few spots for foreigners and really only for students who come from countries with no training facilities - i.e. schools of medicine. Also no transfers and no starting over in 1st year if you have ever attended medical school someplace else. Same 2 points also goes for Manchester in the UK. However, Manchester did suggest calling around in London - King's was their specific suggestion as they are more open to taking foreign students. S-

If anyone is keen to going to RCSI I would apply there. My GPs daughter is currently attending there, it's 6 years and she wasn't really that great out of highschool (mid to high 80s)...so if she got in I think other ppl. may have a chance.
