Hello folks; I'm looking for some help please.

* I am a non-EEA/non-UK citizen
* Looking to study Medicine (2021 start) within the EU
* This is typically a 6-year course in medicine, with the final year having a 12 month "internship"
* Afterwhich I hope to practise in the UK

There seems to be two ways to enter the UK, as a medical graduate from the EU:
(#1) Provisional Registration, or
(#2) Full Registration

I have come across this section on the GMC's website that specifies which countries allow for entry through either route #1 (e.g. Italy, Poland) or route #2 (e.g. Czech Republic, Bulgaria) and will be using this to shortlist the countries for university selection.

However, I am unclear on what the difference is between route #1 and #2.

Specifically, is route #1 an entry into the UK's Foundation Year 1 or 2 programme after completion of my graduate degree? And is route #2 entry into a NHS hospital directly for work? I assume I will need a number of years' work experience for route #2? Whereas route #1 would require no field-work experience, and I could simply use my diploma to apply through the GMC, after completing the PLAB?

Would be grateful for any input/pointers/guidance!

Many thanks,
RMR

It won't be the PLAB when you graduate, and we don't have certainty what will happen but it is most likely that you'll have to sit the UKMLA.
