    Hi guys

    My name is Vinayak and I'm going start medicine this year in the U.K.( September 2016)

    I just wanted to know about my prospects of getting a job here once I graduate from medical school

    Do hospitals employ international students who graduate from U.K. medical schools for foundation year posts? How easy/difficult is it for us to get jobs?

    Does it matter which medical school we graduate from?

    I've been having a lot of thoughts about this and also would like to know about other options too (Eg: doing my residency in the U.S) as I want to be prepared for what I might face in the future

    Any sort of information regarding this would be much appreciated

    Thanks!

    You will have no problem getting a job in the UK if you graduate from a UK medical school. Employment rates are close to 100% irrespective of what medical school you go to or if you are international, none of that matters

    Practicing in the US is tricky. There's a stickied thread about it that you can check out. It's more common for people to go to Canada/Australia/NZ

    That sounds good! Thank you so much for that

    I hear that getting a job in the UK is quite difficult for internationals that's why I was considering other places. UK is top preference

    Getting a fy place isn't difficult since everyone's randomise and it doesn't matter where you're from as long you graduate from a uk medical school.

    The issue lies after that, which is speciality training. Thanks to the new policy, internationals from local schools are excluded from the resident labour market test and will be considered into round one of recruitment. So, it's still challenging but at least we will have equal opportunities now to pursue specialities we desire.

    Hope this helps.
