Hey
Just a question about the difference between research medical capacity and non medical post. I was doing research at a hospital but not working in a clinical capacity at the hospital. So would that make it a non-medical post?

Thanks so much for all this valuable information. Please, are you aware that GMC said there will be no ID check from October. So, in that case, how does this affect our preparation for registration while waiting for our Plab 2 result.

If the GMC or the ECFMG do not ask for medical school transcripts at any point, then how does the GMC determine a transfer student? And does the GMC have certain regulations and criteria for transfer students?

Do clinical attachments/observership rotations (in US hospitals, or in home country outside EU/EEA) that are not paid and are done after completion of internship count towards the ‘60% of last 5 years practicing’?
