    It's very difficult to get accepted into US medical schools as an international student (assuming you don't have American citizenship) - furthermore, they would not allow you to start medical school at 18, whereas you would be able to do this in the UK. You would most likely need to do a US undergraduate degree and it is also worth remembering that it is significantly more expensive to train in the US.

    Personally I would stay in the UK. US surgeons might earn more, but UK consultants certainly don't do badly by any means. If you're really that keen on practising there, you could do the USMLE during medical school.
