Just wondering if anyone knows how easy it is for a UK student leaving sixth form after doing A-Levels to study medicine and become a doctor in the US?

Unlike in the UK, studying Medicine in the USA is only available as a postgraduate option, so you can start a Medicine programme after you complete a four-year pre-med degree in a subject like Biology, Chemistry or Neuroscience. This degree will then prepare you for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), which is required to get into medical school.

Thank you for that information, but how easy is it to get onto a chemistry/biology degree in USA in the first place?

This is a UK forum so I suspect there is limited expertise regarding standard US degrees (which is essentially what you are asking about).

I suspect the answer will be similar to "How easy is it to get onto a Chemistry / Biology degree in the UK" - i.e. it depends on the prestige and the ranking of the Uni and how many people are applying to it.

Bottom line: you need to research yourself! Come back to let us know what your findings are please. I have moved this to "International Study"

Thank you for your help, I will continue to research, I thought somewhere like this would be a good place to start as there are people here with knowledge.
