    Thank you! I was just on that site as well haha

    So because peninsula is on this site does that mean it's accredited by America??

    No British medical degree allows you to work in the US, all of them allow you to work in Aus.

    You could call the university? I'm sure they'd know where their degree is valid.

    If it's on IMEDs list then it is accredited.

    no UK degree will allow you to simply waltz into the US to practise medicine....

    you still have to do the USMLE....which is bloody hard....and even if you own it (which you have to), chances aren't great

    I went to the open day yesterday and asked and they didn't really know, they just went on about the USMLE.



    Kk thanks.



    Amazingly I actually knew that
    I've done a fair bit of research into the USMLE, I know it's not easy but I want the opportunity to be able to apply to America if I still want to and if I feel capable to. Which is why I wanted to know whether PCMD is accredited, which it is

    Thanks everyone for your help.
    i'd be more concerned that even if you absolutely destroy the USMLE (which is unlikely as US schools are used to preparing their students for it and the syllabus has different focuses to most uk schools) you still end up getting last pick of the worst jobs as a reward for being an IMG
