Going to medical school... Maybe the GEM route but I don't think there are any other shortcuts.

I have merged your two threads into one. A (basic) medical doctor in this country is not an MD, but usually MBBS / MBChB. In the UK, an MD is a post-graduate doctorate that medical doctors / surgeons do during or after training.

If you wanted to do medicine in the UK (and then obtain the MBBS / MBChB) then you'll have to either check if your PA qualification (assuming that you obtained it overseas) is eligible for Graduate Entry Medicine as mentioned. It is a 4 year course but it is very intensive and competitive (more so than the usual 5 year undergraduate courses).
