    Cause there is no UCICR that offers medicine here in COSTA RICA .

    I think fifth pathway was originally meant for US citizens studying abroad in countries with a social service requirement after graduation from med school. In other words, lets say you went to med school in Mexico......instead of completing your social sevice year in that country, you could apply to a US med school and complete it there (theoretically). However, I believe only NYU really participates in this program. You would still be considered an IMG, but you would get the U.S. clinical experience needed to land a good residency, ofcourse, if you were a competitive candidate to begin with. Also, I think another pre-requisite is the completion of bachelors degree in the U.S.
    In any case, you should check out usmle.org or ecfmg.org......I am sure they can help you further.

    Sorry, I was wondering what an IMG was, but the answer was on the ecfmg.org page.

    There's also a UNIBE in the DR with a lot of US graduates. Do you know if they are related? Do you know how long the UNIBE in CR has been around?

    Bryan :


    I know these are the med schools cause I study at the UNIBE in Tibas , San Jose Costa Rica .


    DOC AMON , the UNIBE here in costa rica is not affliliated with the one in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC or for that matter any other one around the world . Looks like UNIBE is a pop. name .

    And it has been around since I think 1995 0r 1997 .

    One of the best here , what ever that means .

    Its what you take home with you , not the school .

    Peace .
