After that painfully long promotional thread, you mean you're not going to stay and practice in your beautiful country, Syria?

I am shocked! :D

I think Kaplan arranges these courses. I bought books from a guy who had taken such a course in LA. One cool thing about buying his used books was that 3 of the books (some of the most widely used review books) were signed personally by the authors. In other words, he was taught by top people in every subject.

He paid an arm and a leg, though. I think something like 7000 dollars for 6 weeks. He got a 242 and is now in a surgery residency in Baltimore, by the way.

Go to the Kaplan site and I'm sure they'll be more than willing to inform you about their classes.

Good luck

check out http://www.kaplan.com/ and then go to USMLE --> Courses and Services

On the left you'll have a menu with Lecture Locations as one of the options....

(I think that this is what you were asking.... isn't it?)

If you are not yet in US, then you can click on the international locations link...

What I found near Europe/middle east....
Egypt
France
Saudi Arabia
Spain
Turkey
United Kingdom

Good luck :)
They have links for visa info, etc. Check it out.
