    U.S.-Trained D.O.s Granted FULL Recognition in the United Kingdom

    On September 13, 2005, the General Medical Council of the UK (GMC) announced that, after more than a year of deliberation, US-trained D.O.s will be accepted for full medical practice rights in the United Kingdom. Each applicant will have to pass the Professional Linguistic Assessment Board (PLAB) examination and work for one supervised year in the National Health Service (NHS). Following that year, the applicants will be able to apply for full registration (unsupervised practice or private practice).

    For registration as a specialist, postgraduate training will need to be separately recognized by the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board (PMETB).

    If you have any questions, please contact Joshua Kerr at [email protected] or (800) 621-1773, ext. 8196.

    Now I have a reason to keep my British citizenship (thanks, Dad). Train and work in the US, make my money here, spend some of my "twilight" years in England, then retire there. So much easier on the retirement budget for travel to start in London!
    Seriously, this is the one thing that made me (almost) go MD. I really wanted DO so I did it and hoped for this development before I needed it.
