    Couple of UK-residency-type questions ;-)

    Advertisements



    Hello all. Im so glad I stumbled across this web-site.

    I have a couple of short questions that I will post on the St Georges, AUC and Ross websites:

    1) Does this university offer me the chance to return to the United Kingdom for my clinical years, with the option to sit the British licensing exams? I am currently enrolled in a US college.

    2) If anyone knows of anyone who took this approach could you let me know if they had any trouble either obtaining a residency placement over there, or had difficulty with the licensing exams because of their US training.

    Thankyou so much for your time.

    Yes you can go to ENgland for clincals. I believe you can sit the brit-exams. but I think its best if you contact the school directly to get all the nuances of this issue addressed. Im guess you are a citizen of the UK commonwealth? And remember: you arent getting US training at sgu- this is a Grenadian school (as ross is dominica and AUC is of the N.A.)
    All thebest,

    UK training?

    As a matter of fact, in addition to doing your clinical rotations in the UK, the Office of Career Guidance (of SGUSOM) just appointed a senior faculty member in the UK to handle our students who wish to sit for the PLAB. The PLAB exam is required for a graduate from a non UK school to practice in the UK. We are considering setting up a 6 month refresher program in a UK hospital for our grads who want to take this exam so they can be familiar with the UK meds, sysytem and the like. We have several grads practicing in the UK, including some US citizens!
