United Kingdom What oppertunities for a UK surgeon in USA!

Dear all,

I would be grateful if you could help me here.

I am an old graduate (43yrs, grad 1992), working as a specialist in surgery in the UK.

I wonder whether I can find a specialist (attending physician) post in the USA without doing a residency.

Also, what are the requirements and procedure for participation in a fellowship?

Your advice would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

You cannot practice medicine in USA without doing residency, there's no shortcut. You won't get the license unless you finish residency.

Fellowships, yes you can. but it's just the fellowship and that's it, you won't be able to practice after the fellowship.
