    Hello friends,
    My name is Song and a medical student in Korea.
    I hope to pass MRCP and need your help.
    At first, I would like to listen from you about what books I buy.
    The only way here is to buy at the
    Amazon.com.

    Somebody help me!
    Tell me what books are best suitable for MRCP. [email protected]

    quick question, what's a MRCP??
    is this a test for foreigners to get a residency position in the states?

    MRCP = Member of the Royal College of Physicians. It is the British equivalent of FACP (Fellow, American College of Physicians).

    To obtain a residency position in the US, non-US trained physicians must take the following exams:

    1) USMLE Step 1
    2) USMLE Step 2
    3) TOEFL - regardless of native language
    4) CSA - a clinical skills exam

    Only the last 2 are different than US grads.

    I'll move this over to the International Forum.
