    Holy Toledo, you need to read a LOT more about this.

    Matching in the US is highly competitive, and your B1 visa (while nice to have) does not guarantee you jack crap. You need to pass the Steps and actually match into a residency program. Read the ACGME Match data for foreign graduates, the percentages are not great.

    Matching in Canada as a foreign graduate is almost impossible, especially if you are not Canadian. The numbers in Canada are absolutely daunting. Check the CARMS data online, it is NOT friendly to foreign med grads.

    Training/working in the UK if you are not an EU or UK citizen (or married to one) is also extremely unlikely, even if the GMC accepts your school. This is because you would need a work visa, meaning that any hospital would have to prove that there are NO EU or UK citizens that they can hire for the job. Many foreigners who actually studied medicine in the UK are not even allowed to work there for that very reason!

    Studying medicine overseas (such as in the Carib) is a risk, there is no question about it. If you are graduating 2016 or thereafter, that risk is expected to increase significantly based on the AAMC and ACGME predictions.
