IT might be a good idea if you do some research first. Do a medical school search and search this forum for similar posts.

For example, I believe the University of London has a medical school...actually, there are numerous med. schools in England. As mentioned by many students here on this forum, British Medical Schools are highly regarded by the U.S.
Like I said, the best idea would be to do a general search on medical schools in England, and then search this forum. :luck:

The med schools in London are well respected.Like med schools in any foreign coutry their graduates are eligible for residency in the US if they pass the USMLE.They are highly competitive for admission,and accept few outside the UK,EU or third world countries.They are not generally considered an alternative to US med schools for these reasons.The British med schools have their own set of specific entrance exams and the programs are longer than the US I think 5 years.

Just to clarify, the University of London has more than one medical school...each one is associated with a particular college under U of London, such as UCL, Imperial, King's, etc. They each have different curricula and admissions processes.
