Really? I thought FMGs can practice in all the states if they pass their boards...may I ask which states?hermit said:
SGU grads can practice in all fifty states. That being said, I am applying D.O. (with no shot at U.S. M.D.'s due to a couple of poor semesters from a while back). I flirted with the idea of going SGU, but after weighing the pro's and the con's I believe D.O. is better. I think most people in my shoes feel the same way, but that is up to you.hermit said:
Interesting, he is an exception if he is doing ophthalmology. Then again, something like 10% of all SGU students transfer to allo schools after their first two years (I am sure they all have really good board scores and grades). I would be interested to see how these students do in the match, hmm?Jezzielin said:Not for the Top 3 Carribean schools, one being Ross. You can practice in all 50 states. No problem.
I met up with a doctor from Ross at a local hospital of mine. He is doing very well as is another graduate from Ross who is the head of the opthomology department. You don't get to department head by going to a poor school.
I've read this in several places. One was a SDN parnter site linked off of the home page.BILAL said:Really? I thought FMGs can practice in all the states if they pass their boards...may I ask which states?
Ross, SGU and AUC grads can practice in all 50 states. That is a fact. Ignorance is not an excuse to spread false information.hermit said:I've read this in several places. One was a SDN parnter site linked off of the home page.

No one is going to agree on this topic. I bet we can get a consensus that noone ever picked a caribbean school acceptance over a US school acceptance. Draw your own conclusions from there.
Ross and St. George students can be licensed all over the USA just like a US grad!hermit said:
