Hi
I am currently studying medicine in Germany and am highly interested in doing basic research after finish med school, in Germany we can work on our MD thesis parallel to our normal studies, so that we get our MD shortly after graduating from med school. I would really like to continue working in research for a while and therefore I was planning to apply for a PhD position in the UK. I realized that most PhD programs for medics require two years of specialist training and an MRCP. Do you know whether there are also options for directly attending a phd program after med school?
Thanks a lot!!

Hi,

thanks a lot!!

In Germany, we normally start with our MD already during our normal studies; depending on your project it can take several years to finsih, because you have lessons and so on at the same time. I started quite early with my research work and hope to finish shortly after my final exams. As I'd like to experience deeper basic research work and not "just" clinical work, I was planning to apply for a PhD position in the UK. Now I know how to proceed!
Thanks you very much again!

kind regards

Hi

I am currently studying medicine in Germany, since we need to do lab work during our normal studies in order to get an "MD", I got interested in research work and would like to do my PhD in the UK.
There is a vast amount of very interesting opportunities in Britain, but I was wondering when to apply for a position. Is it possible to send an application before finishing one's final exam and hand in the results later, or is this generally not possible? My fear is that if I wait until after the examinations, it might take quite a few months until I have a position which might cause some financial trouble for me....How do you handle it, when you've already studied in the UK and continue with your PhD?

Thanks a lot!
