anyone here interested if there's a med school, where u do the first 2 n half part of our medical studies in malaysia, and then for your clinical years, you get to transfer to medical schools in canada, us, most of the schools in the UK including kings, aus and new zealand? but the only school they have in US is jefferson. but UK's coverered pretty well..
of cos, there's a rule, if u r a PR or citizen of canada, of cos u can't transter to a school in canada cos it'll be unfair and it'll be sort of a back door entry rite? and the US as well...but if u r from canada and u would like to go t US, then you'll come to malaysia for 2 n half years, sit and pass usmle, then transfer to jefferson in the US

I think you put periods where commas belong and commas where periods belong and letters where words belong :(

Actually Ben Gurion University in Israel has something similar to that: You do your basic science years in Israel, and then your clinical rotations at Columbia P&S-affiliated hospitals. However, you have to learn Hebrew along the way. I'm actually interested in the program because I'd love to live in Israel for a year or two, but programs like these worry me because I'm not sure how much harder it is to get good residency.

From what I gathered during my research into these programs (mostly during my freak out not-going-to-get-accepted phase) they are not very well regarded by residency committees, and most of them give you the unsavory title of "foreign graduate" (I guess its only unsavory if you want to practice in the US). The main problem with them is that the U.S. is the hardest country to obtain a medical license in, and it is even harder if you didn't go to a U.S. accredited school where they are teaching toward the licensing exams (or at least with them in mind).
