Note:
Even though graduated from our Faculty of Medicine but not being citizen of a country belonging to EU and/or EFTA, you will most probably be considered in a different way (e.g. in the U.K. you will be required to do PLAB test first). Details applicable in your case you will have to find out from the particular country where you want to practice medicine or dentistry.
