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.
