Now find out about Chris's experiences when working abroad.

Advantage of working abroad
The big advantage I think of working in another country is it's the only way for you to get to know the people in another country. You can always read about another country, you can read a travel guide, you can watch television and reports on television and read newspapers, but the only way you really get to know people, to understand their ideas and their ethical and social background, the only way to do that is really to visit a country and even better to live in a country.

Status
If you want to work in another country then you always have to overcome the normal difficulties of your degree being recognised by another institution, you're trained in a different country, you need visa and you need registration, specially for the medical professional, it's important. So before I came to the UK, to be able to work in the UK, I needed to register with the General Medical Council in the UK in London.

Next Chris suggests a way to help overcome cultural differences
