Hi,

I’m an American with dual nationality (also have an EU passport). I’m gonna study medicine here in the U.K. and hope to pursue a surgical career (probably orthopaedics) in the US. I’ve heard of the USMLE exams, letters of recommendations, etc. required. I would probably do my elective in he US and try getting the letters that way. However, does anybody know how to go about the USMLE as our pre-clinical years are apparently about 80% of the required USMLE knowledge.. I couldn’t find Digitalis’ information on USMLE (posted a lot about on it in the student room many years ago). The reason I’d prefer the US is honestly the pay is way better and the country just seems better to live in in my opinion.

Thanks a ton!

Orthopaedics as a FMG? Not happening.

Go to a med school in the US (MD or DO but MD preferably)
