    1. Hi there, sure. Please check the GMC requirements to see if your medical school is accepted. If it is then you need to complete the rest of the requirements to get registration. Good luck!

  1. Hello please let me know if I can get gmc after a long career gap (more than 3 years) I did take exams and volunteered at medical camps for 1.5 -2 years other than that I was home with social anxiety and depression (after losing a parent). Is this going to be a problem? Since I can’t really explain my gap because it’s all due to my bad mental health. Tia.

    1. Hi there! Regarding your inquiry about obtaining GMC registration after a career gap of more than three years, it is important to be transparent about your circumstances. The GMC considers extenuating circumstances, including health issues, when reviewing applications. Focus on the steps you have taken to address your mental health, such as volunteering and completing exams.
