If an undergraduate in medicine and surgery(MBBS) from India wants to practice in UK, the person will have to register with NHS after the licensing exam. And after that the student is put through FY1+FY2 or directly speciality training. And the student will work in the hospital and simultaneously give exams to start working as a consultant.
In India, there's a completely different process. After undergraduation, the student gets licensed as a doctor after which the student does a speciality by enrolling for a postgraduate course at a university. And attends patients during the postgraduate course just like during the undergraduate course.
If you notice the difference I'm trying to point out...
I want to understand about the following:
- What would be the difference between the speciality training in UK and a postgraduate in India?
- Why are there not many similar postgraduate courses available at UK universities? (Like it's more of research or only partially-taught courses. It's not like India i.e. fully-taught.)
- Will I be missing out on something if I choose to enroll for speciality training in the UK instead of the postgraduate in India?
