    Specialising in a field, HOW TO?

    Advertisements



    Hello
    Im a united kingdom resident tat has a keen interest in studying medicine in the Czech republic.
    I have done lots of research regarding, admissions and recognition, but one subject I am confused on is, if I decided to specialise in a field, for example cardiology and oncology, after I had finished my six years of medicine in the Czech republic.
    Would I have to "specialise" in the Czech and get recognised by the GMC (general medical council)? Or would I be able to specialize in the UK, seeing as I am a UK resident.
    Also, If decided to specialise ( forgive me if I use the wrong terminology), what would the process be.
    Any links would be useful to.

    Kind regards

    Sanatha

    Hi Santhana!

    If you graduate medicine in CZ then it does not matter in which EU country you make your specialisation. Within the EU the MUDr. is fully recognized. So after graduation you can go back to the UK and make your specialization.

    Thank you so much.
    You have been a great help.
    Just one more question.
    Do you happen to know te process of becoming, lets say a oncologist.
    If you dont know, never mind.
    Thanks again.

    Kind regards

    After obtaining mudr from cz you will get full registration with gmc. You can apply for f2 post and then go onto to do further training. In the case of oncology you have to do cmt (core medical training) including MRCP exam and this training lasts about 2 years. Furthemore there are 2 fields within in oncology, one of which entails surgery (medical oncology) and the other involving medicine (clinical oncology). Then there is further training (specialist training) lasting 4 - 6 years.

    Well here's the big question: are you also a UK citizen? If so, then yes you can return back to the UK and will able to directly apply for an F2 post and continue from there on.

    If you're just a resident, you'll still be able to return back but you might not be able to get a FY post easily. So you should keep this in mind.

    Well then things should run smoothly for you! (assuming you work hard and pass every every in med school, which I'm sure you will if you put in the hard work.)

    You're welcome and good luck with your future medical school!
