    Hello,I am currently at the start of y11-GCSE year...I would like to study medicine at a top university.
    there are no 'Top Universities' for pre0registration health professional course

    My academic record is v.good and here is what i do as of now:

    Extra- Curricular - Non medicine Related…
    5 different ones...

    Extra- Curricular’s-Medicine Related…
    3 different ones

    Work experience…
    2 different ones
    [/quote]

    what qualities do these extra curriculars add to your ability to be an effective Medical Practitioner ?

    Is this good enough for the start of y11?

    My dad is a surgeon,i would like to go to a top medical school like Cambridge or Harvard university...I have been thinking about whether i should study in the US or UK...Money is not an issue as my dad said he will pay of the fees for schooling...

    I definitely would like to work as a surgeon in America(neurosurgery would be nice-uneducated blatant opinion-take this with a pinch of salt)...If i studied in the UK,it would take 15 years to become a surgeon,2 years doing USMLE exams to go and practice in America and 2-4 years rising up the ranks there...HOWEVER in the US i was told it only takes 11 years/less in comp. to UK to become a surgeon and i wont have to do the USMLE exams and will be in a better position...

    Which one would be better and what University;'s are good for medicine in America...
    Say i would want to go to Harvard,is this too ambitious as i'm doing a very hard degree at a top university in a different country?

    Thanks.

    But people get caught up on such things as there definitely is some medical school far far better than others...
    oh really ?

    given some of the best known currently practising Doctors in the UK are small town boys and girls who went to 'provincial' medical schools ...
