I would greatly appreciate any insight you all might have regarding the following:
I am a 37 year old non-traditional premed student in South Carolina (post-bacc) w/ a degree in Finance and a dual-bachelors in History and Political Philosophy as well as all sciences needed to qualify for med school. I have a 4.0 GPA. I have been in banking/finance for 17 years and am now two semesters away from MCAT/applying to med school.
Recent events with my wifes job may relocate us to Scotland, specifically Edinburgh. This is extremely exciting; however, I am not sure how it will impact med school or the length of schooling.
I have been speaking with the University of Edinburgh, but a lot of the terms they use are not familiar to me. They have a six year program and I am trying to determine, out of the six years, how much time I would have left if I transferred my bachelors and additional sciences that I took to qualify for med school.
They said that with a four year degree and all qualifying sciences I would "...skip the 3rd Intercalated year of the MBChB, making it a 5 year programme, rather than 6 years." How many more years would the program be?
Does anyone have any insight? Have you gone through this same thing? Anyone in pre-med in Scotland by chance?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
