    russian med degree recognition and a few other questions

    Advertisements



    hey guys, ive searched quite abit and cannot find direct answers to my questions if any of you can help me out and clarify a few things for me that would be great.

    -is there any chance i can work in russia after finishing my degree?

    -what specialisations are available in russia and are they difficult for a uk student to join?

    -which countries will i be able to freely work in without having to sit further exams like the PLAB etc?

    -i understand it may be difficult to obtain work in the uk after sitting the PLAB but will i be able to setup my own practice with relative ease?

    any help would be great,
    thanks guys,

    Angelo

    Evening,
    a) yes, having an MD degree from a Russian medical school (and after 2-3 year residency) you may get a clinical job here,
    b) we follow German system of 6 year study duration which does not require Bachelor degree for admission. Medical schools offer the following study programs: Medicine (6 year), Dentistry, Clinical Psychology (Psychiatry), Sport Medicine, Pharmacy. MD graduates then are getting deeper specialization during postgraduate study (of 2 or 3 years duration, depends on the specialization). The study is available in Russian, English and French.
    They all would like to accept UK student (and then use this fact for promotion), but the standard requirements are common: you should be eligible for university study at home country (A-level certificate), study Bio, Chem and Math (Phys) at high school and have good grades (the leading schools expect at least 65-70%, other may enjoy the passing grades, but may ask you to undertake preparatory courses first (8-9 month study of Russian language and core subjects for prospective students of Russian medium programs) in a case the grades are extremely low.
    c) former Soviet Republics (probably except for Baltic states) may accept the degree from Russia without extra exams. Almost other countries including US and UK would expect you to sit for local exam. Some of my former students are practicing in Canada and UK. I guess, a guy in UK was posting here 3-4 years ago. RAMA (association of Russian-speaking doctors in America) includes >10,000 members. UK society is not that large. Find their forum in web and ask them about the own practice. This way you will avoid propaganda (both positive and negative) which is quite common here.
    With best wishes,…
