As foreign medical school graduates, who wished to work in the NHS, we faced the challenges of finding information about how to apply and what was required for a specialisation in the UK. This is how DOCTOR IN THE UK was born. We set out to create a website that we would have found useful back during our applications period that combined knowledge, guidance and the opportunity to receive advice from colleagues who went through a similar experience.



I graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA (BSc in Neuroscience and Psychology) in 2011. Then completed my medical degree in Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. I am currently working as a Foundation Year 2 Doctor in Carlisle, United Kingdom.

I completed my medical studies at the University of Patras and at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece. I decided to explore the training and professional opportunities in the UK by rotating at the departments of A&E, Medicine and General Surgery in Surrey, United Kingdom.


This website is not an official UKFPO, GMC or NHS website. It was made by doctors who studied in the EEU and wanted to share their experiences, offer some advice and provide guidance as to where to look and what kind of information you will need to find out on your own. Read more here.
