Tell me everything you know about applying and going to medical school in the UK! Also, about possibly going back to the US after medical school.

So, as yet another question in my quest to figure out my path to medical school...
Can you tell me everything you know about the process of applying to, getting into, and studying at a medical school for graduate entry in the UK? I've been reading a lot about it, but I'd love to hear some personal stories.
Also, very important:
- Have you gone to medical school in the UK and then practiced in the US? I know how the process works (USMLE, etc.), but I'm curious about your personal story of how you did it. Did you go to the US for residency after being in the UK? Did you pursue a career in the UK for a while and then go to the US? What specialty are you in?
- How does the process of doing medical research transfer from the UK to the US?
- Did you pursue an alternate career that uses your knowledge and skills but is not clinical practice?
(If it matters, I'm a dual US/EU citizen and am resident in the UK. I should have home fees status. I'm currently doing a PhD in a different field in the UK.)
