I was wondering how difficult it is for Americans to get into medical schools in England. From what I've seen of some of the English med school Web sites, very few foreign students are accepted to most classes. Are there some English schools that tend to accept more overseas students? Are there some that tend to accept more mature students? Are the requirements similar to those for students applying to the six-year programs in Ireland (i.e., no MCAT or prerequisites ) or do the English schools have specific prerequisites? Are the one-year house officer positions in England difficult to obtain after graduation? Any information would be sincerely appreciated, even if all you can do is point me in a particular direction. I've been trying to research this myself and have come up against something of a brick wall due to my lack of familiarity with the grading system in England and other policies pertaining to med school there. Thanks!
