Sunando you have given a good picture of the state of
affairs..let me make it look a bit "better"...this
young lady who is writing everyday is definitely doing
a good thing, trying to know the situation...one thing
which i don't think many of us did....well your
queries are quite legible...i will try and answer them
from MEDICINE point of view only:
1. Doing an MRCPI from India is definitely
helpful...it will give you probably a 25% better
chance of getting your job but then again,"nothing is
sure"(remember these 3 words forever when in UK)
2. Things have changed with the introduction of MMC,
most of the jobs have been converted to foundation
year posts and people having an MD from Home will not
get these jobs. Due to the introduction of these jobs
SHO roatations are going to b a thing of the past.
Check out this link...
3. Most hospitals are now adhering to a strict scoring
system for short listing and the five main criteria
for short listing are: UK experience, MRCPI, Audits,
ALS/ALERT course and case and paper presentations. SO
if you can work at these you will get a job but then
again remeber those"3 words".
4. Last but not the least UK graduates are going to
New Zealand as there are not enough jobs here...there
were 2000 jobless UK graduates this August.
I hope this will give you further look into the
matters here..do keep writing if u want 2 know
more...all the best.
