      Well are you going there by yourself? or are you married to a UK citizen? If so, then it might be possible to actually get in. If not, then it's almost impossible.

      Either way, you have to write the PLAB (parts 1 and 2; part 1 can be taken outside of UK while part 2 is only available in the UK.) Passing it will not however, entitle you to get into a training program. It merely gives you certification by the GMC, allowing you to work there. You have to just look for hospital vacancies, and try your luck applying in those places. The general order of preference in recruiting graduates is as follows:

      UK citizens from UK medical schools >> EU citizens from EU medical schools >> non-EU citizens from EU medical schools > EU citizens from non-EU medical schools > non-EU citizens from non-EU medical schools.

      Anesthesiology is apparently not as competitive as some of the other fields (mostly surgical.) But I'm still not sure if it would be possible for a non-EU citizen from a non-EU medical school to get in.

      You can check out this website for more info.:

      Good luck!

          Good luck!

          This isn't true. If you have an EU degree or are an EU citizen you are considered exactly equal to a UK citizen with a UK degree. Also until recently the citizenship was the issue rather than where the degree was from, now both are equal.

            actually I just got confirmation that EU citizen with EU MD is directly "fully registered" and can apply for F2 whereas a UK graduate with "only" MBBS (5 years instead of 6 for most EU MD) can only apply for F1
            So priority is not exactly the one expected...
