    Hi,

    I'm currently a medical student at an Ontario university. Im planning on graduating and doing my residency in Canada....after that, I'm thinking of moving to the UK to work for a couple of years, and then perhaps coming back to Canada...

    Does anyone know what types of requirements need to be met in order to work in the UK as a doctor who is a Canadian citzen and has had all training done in Canada?

    I visited the General Medical Council for information, but its pretty vague in terms of instructions for non-EU graduates..

    any info is greatly appreciated

    thanks!

    You need to do PLAB's first and then register with the GMC, then you can apply for jobs directly at the hospitals, the bmj.com has a listing of all jobs.
