UKMLA Frequently Asked Questions
How is the UKMLA different from the PLAB? First, the PLAB was an assessment that ensured doctors who qualified abroad had the skills and knowledge necessary to practise medicine in the UK. However, UK medical students only needed to enter their second year of the Foundation Programme. This meant there was no standard exam for doctors practising in the UK. Now, all medical students and doctors wishing to practise in the UK will need to pass the UKMLA.
