You take less time but you may work more e.g some training in the uk might be 60 hrs or less per week while in the US its 80hr or more
How does this equate to seeing ad learning more? If you're tired you make mistakes and take less in. If you work for less years, in fewer places at fewer time-points you see less conditions and fewer complications

I see do you think thats its at the same level and abundance as in the US?
It's a new techology so I wouldn't imagine it' abundant anywhere, I'd imagine the level would be comparable bearing in mind the UK is smaller.

Not off the top of my head, but im sure I could find one.
go on then

If you read previous posts you will see i have cleared up what i meant by that.
I read all the previous posts and don't see anywhere where you cleared this up, would you care to try again?

Is the year placement paid well under or over 20k?
Is there a possibility for networking medicine GEP?
How important is the institute of biomedical sciences accreditation?
Has anyone experienced the placement year? if so how was it?

No, they originate in the states sort of cutting edge technology, and get pass along. Just like im sure some treatment start in the UK and get passed along to the states. however percentage wise the former is greater.
Oh my!

Hip replacements - UK
Hip resurfacing - UK
Humeral head resurfacing - UK
Knee replacements - France
Arthroscopy - Swiss
Cruciate repairs - UK
Dynamic hip screw - Swiss
K wires - German
Intermedullary nails - German
External fixation devices - Russian

Surgical loupes! - French/German

Every common op and essential bit of kit I can think of in my speciality was first thought of outside the US. So yeah... good luck with that theory. American surgeons still visit Birmingham to learn hip surgery.

MRI was also co-invented by a British scientist too.
Yes, and i'm quite sure that scientist/doctor was from Nottingham University.
