Home / News / Study Medicine in Europe. Get clinical experience in the UK & USA
Studying Medicine in Europe is an amazing experience that gives students a global perspective of their future as a doctor. Choosing the right university is however critical for academic success, personal fulfilment and emotional wellbeing. One of the critical decisions in choosing a medical school is the planned career trajectory. Medical programmes in the European Union are fully recognised in the United Kingdom (regardless of BREXIT) and nearly all states in the USA*. Unfortunately this recognition doesn’t in itself guarantee employment.
When choosing a university for a successful medical career, students need to be aware of the clinical opportunities on offer. One of the best ways to be a globally mobile doctor is gaining a broad international clinical experience whilst studying. Gaining this experience in the country of your future employment is however the gold standard. Students most commonly arrange this informally or through established exchange programmes. Some universities have however established formal links with hospitals around the world.
The University of Nicosia in Cyprus does just this, giving students an advantage in securing their first employed position. In addition to the world-class care offered at Limassol General Hospital, the University of Nicosia has established clinical links in the UK and the USA.
University of Nicosia students can conduct part of their clinical attachments at Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Barnsley Hospital is a five-star rated NHS trust serving a population of over a quarter of a million people. In addition to emergency and intensive care services the hospital provides specialist services in oncology and surgery. This opportunity is open to all UK and EU citizens studying at the university.
In the final year of the programme at Nicosia, students can have a four-week placement at Brookdale Hospital or Stony Brook Southampton Hospital in New York. This gives students a critical insight into the workings of the USA healthcare system. Employers really value this experience, strengthening your application in the residency matching processes.
