    Hello!

    I was wondering, is it difficult for a physician educated in the US to go and work in ENgland, particularly London? Thanks so much!

    I think its "theoretically" possible.. but its soooo unlikely and difficult that its almost impossible. Its hard enough for EU students to find jobs, let alone non-EU! Correct me if i'm wrong though..

    what zeyad says is most likely correct. In this day and age, it is very difficult. Especially if you are non-EU with no ties to the UK. If you are an expert in your field, than maybe. If not, you may be required to repeat training. However, please do a search within these forums. THere have been multiple past threads (recently) about this subject, with links you can go to to check eligibility with the UK medical council.
