what do you mean get a PR status? how are oz and nz related to the US? There is no "best" country, because there are a lot of different systems and some work very well for that country. For instance, the French are known to have a very rigorous system, but it might not work for someone else, say an American because of differences in the way tests work and language, for instance. Generally the western countries are quite good (UK, Ireland) and Indian ones are known to be very good, and Israeli schools (i.e. Sackler). There is no "best."

"PR" has a medical meaning that is quite funny in your context of what medical education will give you "PR status". I'd suggest a US residency by all accounts! :laugh:

Not a question of people being smart enough. Some abbreviations are accepted in common usage and others are not. Make yourself clear.

As for the text-speak. That just makes you look like a ***** who can't communicate in English properly. Don't do that.

There are enough illiterates and functional illiterates in the world without you pretending to be one.

If you'd like to ask your question in complete English sentences they are many people on this site involved in medical education in many different countries. They may be good enough to help you find the answer to whatever puzzle is bothering you...
n e grammatical mistakes made by me here...pls do tell me :confused:

:laugh: SuitsYou! To be honest, everywhere besides the US is "slow" on the technological uptake. Even in the UK and Ireland, that are quite advanced, they'd still be behind the US in resources and technology. Now, that isn't to say that they do without, but they would say..have drastically fewer of the machinery. India would be the same way, especially as there might be a more monetary burden there. Don't forget that there is a location aspect of medicine...you might not necessarily see a more diverse population of diseases in India but you'd see say..more bugs linked with sanitation vs. something like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. You'd see different diseases in each country.

I'm not really sure how easy it is to get permanent residency status in other countries because other places have different systems. In Ireland, it's pretty ok for now, but it'll change at some point. In the UK, it's not looking great at at the moment because they have an oversupply of senior doctors.

I believe the UK has an oversupply of junior doctors rather than senior ones. Actually they have a shortage in senior doctor. That's why they created the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme, where they import senior overseas physicians of a standard equivalent to consultant status to work as consultants for a specified period of time. The problem is that they can't fund more consultancy posts, forcing the registrars to accept associate specialist posts instead.
