Hello! Im Colombian and im finishing my career in medicine here, right now im in my year of practice, so the idea is that i can go next year to England, i've been reading about what i need to continue my studies in there, but i haven't found information enough, i know i must take the PLAB test, now i want to know whats next?
1. I must do 2 foundation years? do i get paid?
2. How hard i would be for me as Colombian? is it almost impossible?
3. For gynaecology how's the process after the foundation years? How many years i takes?
Sorry if is too much but i would be so glad if anyone can help me, i really need this information to start making some decisions

This isn't my area of expertise but just a few thoughts:
Have you looked for any info online?
After your MBBS here you do 2 years as a foundation doctor and then start to specialise which takes different amounts of time depending on what you want to study. Competition for jobs is fierce and I don't think there's a shortage of doctors so you may struggle to get a job and a visa. But yes you get paid.
