Is medical school 6 years (starting directly after high school) in every country other than the US?

What is the structure for residency in other countries? How is it different when compared to residency in the US?

Depends, its usually somewhere between 5-8 years. Almost all have it as an undergraduate degree so you don't need to do a bachelors to apply. Residency varies, in the UK its longer than in the US. After you graduate medical school in 5-6 years you do 2 years of foundation training sort of like internship and then you go into specialty training 5 years for GP and up to 10 years for specialists.
