Medical Education in the UK.
MEDICAL EDUCATION IN RUSSIA
It's well known in Russia that medicine is the most difficult subject to study.
Applicants have to pass successfully the Uniform State Examinations in the Russian language, mathematics, chemistry, biology. Students also have to specify what area they want to specialize in.
Medical education takes 6 years in Russia. The first 2 years- preclinical- students study anatomy, phisiology, philosophy. From the beginning of the course they spend one day a week in hospital.
The third year is a transitional between preclinical & clinical years. Students learn pathology, pharmacology, general surgery. At the end of the third year all students take a six-week practical course.
The fourth & the fifth years are clinical. Students have tutorials in the mornings, have lectures in the afternoons. In the sixth year students work on chosen specialization almost as real doctors under the supervision of specialists.
Upon completion of the sixth year, having passed State Examination, graduates receive their diploma.
After one-year internship they receive a certificate of specialization. After qualifying students do one or two years of residency.
Postgraduate training which includes three years of research leads after successful defending of one's thesis to a Candidate of Sciences in Medicine Degree.
Medical Education in the UK.
As I know there is not so great difference in Medical Education in Russia and in the UK. Medical Education in the UK is provided in medical schools and universities. There are 4 levels of Medical Education in the UK: undergraduate training, Foundation Program, postgraduate and continuing professional education. As for Medical Education in the UK we know that all medical schools are state-funded.
Courses generally last 5 or 6 years: two years of pre-clinical training and three year clinical training at a teaching hospital. The final outcomes of the qualifications meet at level 7 (the UK Masters degree. Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) ,so after completion of medical school, junior doctors enter a vocational training phase.
The first year of such training is known as an internship And newly qualified doctors enter a two year Foundation Programme where they undertake different specialties such as: General Medicine, General Surgery and Pediatrics. After internship a young doctors receives a «certificate of Experience». Doctor must work eighteen months as a General Practice Specialty Registrar. After completing this training the doctor can become a GP and can practice in different specialties such as: Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Geriatrics.
Hospital doctors after relevant postgraduate exams within their chosen specialty (e.g. Member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons) can get a Certificate of Completion Training and become a Consultant which the highest level in a specialty.
After that to get a higher degree Doctoral of Medicine (MD) or PhD- the doctors have to write a thesis based on two three years of full-time research.At the end of my speech can say that Medical Education in the UK from 7 m more than 10 years.
