Would a student who has done their 5 or 6 year medicine course in the UK be able to do the F1 & F2 equivalent (Residency and Fellowship) in the USA? A simple carry over?
Or must one finish foundation years in UK and then make the move?
Thanks in advance! I have no plans in doing so, a friend posed the question and I have been thinking about it ever since..

As long as you have also completed the american medical exams - the USMLE - then yes you can.
Completing said exams is very expensive and quite challenging as the curriculum doesn't really follow the order in which things tend to be taught in the UK and it tends to focus on different things versus typical UK medical training.
