Daily Mail reports that 770 straight-A British medical school applicants were denied a spot in a domestic medical school and were forced to study medicine abroad despite a ‘crippling’ national shortage of physicians. The article also states that foreign doctors are four times more likely to be “struck off for blunders than British counterparts.”
While there could be more to the story such as these failed applicants’ sincere desire to practice medicine, citizenship, etc., we simply wanted to bring this article to your attention to show that the issues faced in the United States and Canada are also present in many other countries as well.
Best of luck with your applications!
