    Hello there, I'm a non-EU graduate but will be graduating from an EU country soon (Prague, CR) and I was wondering how does it work for this "category" of people. I'm also an EU permanent resident. I've checked out the Irish Medical council website and it did give me a lot of information (Regarding being exempt from taking the PRES Step 2 and Step 3 exams). I also don't think I'll be required to take the IELTS (as I've done my primary and secondary education in the U.S.)

    I would like to know how is the scenario for EU medical graduates who are non-EU citizens but permanent EU residents? Is it too competitive? (to the extent that it's unlikely that I'll be accepted?) What are the chances of a person in my scenario wanting to get into a surgical field?

    I'm considering the U.K. too but I don't really know much about the scenario there. For those of you acquainted with the situation in the U.K., could you please let me know the realistic chances of getting into a surgical field as a non-EU citizen, EU medical graduate. Secondly, if I know this is possible, I'm also willing to do some clerkships (clinical attachments) in the U.K. (as I have a few doctor relatives family living and working there).

    Thank you very much. I'd appreciate all the help I can get.

    it would be very difficult to get into Ireland, the number of intern spots are closely related to the number of Irish medical school graduates and no matter what officially is siad the order of preference is Irish Citzen, Irish medical school graduate > EU citizen, Irish graduate >*> Irish citizen, EU grad > EU citizen, EU grad > Non-EU citizen, EU grad > Non-EU citizen , non-EU grad. Non-EU grads from irish medical schools would be in around * is.
    hope that helps
    I've worked in healthcare system and what people will officialy say and waht they'll actually do are different its just like in US where US grads are preferred to IMGs

    True Louglee, but the US system is different in many ways too. Getting a very high score opens the room for some of the competitive specialties (especially the surgical ones). And as it's a much bigger country, you're bound to get in somewhere. I guess the same can't be said for Ireland.

    UK graduates who are new to full enlistment and taking up another employment, or reestablishing their names to the enroll after a delayed nonattendance from training, assignment service are required to work inside an affirmed work on setting as surveyed by the GMC as appropriate for specialists new to full enlistment. The GMC suggests that EEA graduates guarantee that they additionally work in an APS when they initially take up work in the UK under full enlistment.
