SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi all, I don't know if this has been covered, if so, please forgive me. But basically . . . My uncle is currently a top surgeon in Taiwan - he's been practicing for over 20 years and actually is the director of a hospital. He graduated from the National University of Taiwan. Anyhow, his kids were born here in the US and are now relocating here to go to high school. Hence, my question is . . . 1. What options does my Uncle have to practice in the US? They plan to settle in the San Franciso Bay Area. Would he have to take the USMLE's and redo another residency? 2. I don't think taking the USMLE's and redoing residency is an option for him. Does anyone know of any advanced educational opportunities? Someone suggested trying PA school - it's shorter than redoing residency. 3. He does have an MPH from UC Berkeley. I don't know if that would help in any programs. Thanks all for any advice!
