    How difficult would it be for say an american to complete the foundations program/ specialty training if they have an EU medical degree?

    Without an EU or UK passport, the general consensus among the UK medical recruiters I have talked with is that it's almost impossible.

    That sucks. I would think having an EU medical degree would count for something when it comes to graduate training positions.

    Unless your EU degree is from UK/Ireland.

    Nope, that doesn't matter. You see, it's an immigration issue, not a medical diploma issue. Of course, the GMC thinks that a foreigner's UK/Irish medical diploma is just peachy keen... but if s/he isn't an EU citizen and can't get approved to work in the UK, s/he is still up poop creek without a paddle.
