    Hello everyone,
    I've got a question to ask about cardiology residency in UK.
    I'm currently doing my MBBS in India... I've completed my final year & will be starting my mandatory 1 year internship later this month completing which I'll be getting my MBBS degree...
    I hope to become a cardiologist and I wish to do it from UK.... However I've no idea what to do... I've read about the medical curriculum & the path which a UK medical graduate needs to take in order to become a cardiologist... However nowhere could a I find a guide for an Indian medical graduate...
    Hence I'm posting my question here about what I need to do in order to apply for a degree in cardiology in UK...
    [Note: In India in order to become a cardiologist 1 must take the following steps:
    1) Complete 4.5 of medical school & do 1 year of internship there to attain the MBBS degree
    2) Give the entrance exam to get entry into a PG course a medical college or teaching hospital in Gen Med & get an MD(3 years course)
    3) Then give an entrance exam to get admission for a DM course in Cardiology in a medical college or teaching hospital.]

    You would need to sit the PLAB first and foremost in order to register with the GMC and have a license to practice in the UK.
