    "Students wishing to achieve the medical degree may enter the program during the Premedical Sciences as part of the 7-, 6- or 5-year program, or enter directly into the four-year program beginning with the first year of Medical Sciences, which is when most students from North America begin."

    How the **** is this even possible?

    That's for people who have done 2 years pre-med or bachelors, its like the 4 year postgrad courses in the UK, which is the norm in North America. You can be a doctor in 3 years at McMaster university in Canada (runs through the summer).

    Or, if you are really rich, and moral-less, you could go to a third-world country and pay some corrupt official to register you there.

    You can over here in reality it takes 7 years as that course is for people who already have a undergraduate degree and are aiming to do another.

    So 3yrs undergraduate Bsc + 4yrs Postgraduate entry medicine = 7yrs

    And I don't think that it requires an undergrad. I know someone who is at SGU straight after A levels and he will have his MD in 2013....he started in 2008.......The don't get an undergrad degree only some sort of BS PCGCE or something.

    They can't just place their graduates in the UK. To work in the UK they will be PLABing - which is not easy, not cheap and most certainly not quick. More fool you for believing the sales pitch.
