Hi @DrHamza!

Being a medical student, you’ll be searching for an elective placement. After graduation you’ll be able to join an observership/ clinical attachment.

In order to get a placement you can search Google for medical schools around the UK and look on their websites for electives. They usually have a lot of info about those. Also, you can email them and ask about their programmes.

Yes. Most medical schools ask for a proof of language proficiency. But make sure to ask about it and what is acceptable.

Hope it was helpful. Don’t hesitate to come back if there’s anything more you’d like to know.
Best wishes and good luck! :cherry_blossom:
