A country called Quebec after 2 years of college if you are resident of Quebec.

Caribbean countries if you are also a Caribbean citizen. I know one student who just graduated grade 12 from ON and it is almost certain that she will go to med school in the fall.

You can get into med school in the UK.

Afganistan does not yet have a med school.

If outside of North America, ya, you can go start med straight out of highschool. Canadians can also go straight to med school out of high school in England/Ireland, but it'll be a 6 year program at ~40,000 Euros a year.

There are 5 year medical schools in Australia, but most are even more competitive to get into then the 6 year ones.

What would they be looking for from an international student standpoint and money is not a problem.

Basically grades, and there are lots of rich internationals, for who money is also not a problem. So unless you have good highschool grades, you are very unlikely to get in.
