I have 2 questions. #1) Do any med schools in foreign countries give an M.D. degree? Or are all the foreign degrees called something else besides MD? #2) If someone goes to a foreign med school and goes thru residency in a foreign country, what do they have to do to practice in the USA? Do they have to do another residency? Or can they get credit for the foreign residency and immediately treat patients? Do they have to be board-certified in their home country and take the board exams in the US also?
