Medical licenses: new European rules for access

Do you want to be a medical doctor in the UK or in Europe?

New European rules have been set for accessing medical licenses: from January 2016, basic medical training must be 5,500 hours AND 5 years.

This means that qualifications obtained after fast track degrees in medicine or graduate entry medical programs (GEP, GMP, GEM) are not accepted anymore.
Further information on the UK General Medical Council’s website.
