USMLE or Plab

It is very important question for all medical students and young doctors who want to travel abroad to work as physicians in USA or Europe.

If we are comparing USMLE and PLAB , so in general USMLE is much harder, cost much more, takes longer time in preparation and finding jobs but a residency in USA and American Board is the best educational route to prepare a perfect physician.

PLAB is much easier, cost much less and takes less time in preparation, the only hard thing about PLAB is ILETS score not the medical knowledge, also when you travel to UK with PLAB only so mostly you are going to work as a general practitioner till you do MRCS, MRCP ...ETC.

Finally everyone know his life, his requirements ...etc, so only you can decide.
