Working in the U.K.

Doctors who train across the Caribbean are in a uniquely favourable position if they choose to migrate to the U.K.


U.K. Experience is often highly regarded throughout the region

Shared cultural and historical norms persist.

Primary Medical Qualification is recognised

Due to the rigours of working in the Caribbean, you are well placed to compete with U.K. grads.

Earnings can be considerably larger than in many Caribbean regions with often favourable foreign exchange rates.

English is the first language, often overlooked but as commonwealth states exemptions from English exams are cost and time saving.

Initially expensive to move (compounded by moving home)

Long distance from home (fortunately the caribbean islands are destination islands and serviced by major airlines - British Airways, Virgin Airways)
