    Hi everyone, I am Canadian and I know that means its easier to get into a Canadian med school but I heard american med schools are more prestigious is that true? Also, if I go to a Canadian med school can I still work in places like Florida (I love amusement parks and I wanna get season passes and stuff) Do i just have to take the USMLE or am I not allowed to?

    If the Canadian school is LCME, you're basically like a US allo grad. If it's not, you're a FMG.
