    I'm finishing a med school in Romania, this summer, and I'd like to get a job in UK. I want to apply for a PRHO year, before taking (hope so!!) the PLAB. Is there anyone from UK, that could help me?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi

    The best place to start is the BMJ classifieds. The online version at <a href="http://www.bmj.com" target="_blank">www.bmj.com</a> will update every week and you can subscribe to be notified by email when the new jobs come out. Most of the jobs are out about 4 or 5 months before they start in either August or February. Jobs do come up in between these time when people drop out but there's not many.

    It might be worth contacting M&D Europe <a href="http://www.readmedicine.com" target="_blank">www.readmedicine.com</a> as they have set up a scheme for foreign students to do PRHO jobs in England.

    I've seen a statistic, at British Council's site. In 2000, there were about 3000 PRHOs in UK, and only 60 were from non-EEA countrys. Not very encouraging for me, but I guess I've nothing to loose...

    I'm checking those sites right now, thanks a lot. Hey, can we keep in touch, somehow? It would help me a lot
