If you have no chance in hell at US MD or DO?
You're statement is incorrect.Carribean is better. Australia is having a surge in the number of seats available for medical students but not enough training spots after you graduate.. so don't go unless you really just wanna live there. but if you want to have a shot at coming back to the US, then I say Carribean is better.
*YourYou're statement is incorrect.
From my gathering, there are only low number of training spots in NSW but plenty in other states in AUS. Also, why would someone be concerned about residency spots in Australia, as you state: "but not enough training spots after you graduate.." Why would I be concerned about residency spots when a person would want to go back to US for residency?
Also, The University of Queensland is starting a program where they do 2 year clinicals in Ochner in New Orleans.
Someone beat Pollux score, amazing.Carib. schools, on the other hand, basically pitch to the USMLE (I heard something about the highest score ever achieved on Step1 belonging to a Ross graduate, don't quote me on that though). Also, carib students do most, if not all of their clinicals at US hospitals. Getting a residency as an FMG from any country (from what I've gathered) is ALL about your test scores, and who you know. Going to SGU/AUC/Ross will give you a HUGE edge over Australian schools in these regards.
