I am planning to study medicine in the UK, then specialise in tropical medicine and possibly general surgery in France. How do the courses in France for medicine, tropical medicine, and general surgery differ from those in the UK and what extra qualifications/exams would i have to have/sit in order to do my specialisation in France? Any advice and information on this matter will be helpful x

Do you already have your course confirmed for the UK 2019?
No idea if the doctors here can help, but if not, then you need to be finding out where French doctors and medical students hang out.

No, I'll still be doing my A levels next year. I'm just looking at my options. Okay, thank you.

Then you will need to consider the impact Brexit will have on your aspirations.
That will depend on your nationality, where you are living and what is agreed or not.

Yeah, I did think of that but I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I'm a British citizen so studying and working in the UK won't be a problem, but for France I'm not sure. Would you by any chance know of any other sites like this one for students or aspiring doctors?

Hey,
Late to the party but to specialise in France it'll be complicated-ish. I'm French so I've informed myself about it and it seems you'd still need to do your 2 foundation years in the UK in order to get your full GMC registration. Then there's the french national exam l'ECNi that you'd have to take and it's known to be very difficult to do well in it if you don't study in France. French students who study medicine in Romania (in French) have lots of trouble every year getting into the specialties they want because they don't get access to the teaching materials and past questions, odds are you wouldn't either.
If specialising in France is what you really want to do the simplest way would be to do your medical studies in France.
