Check out the International Forum and its Europe sub-forum:Hi Guys. I am a 4th yr medical student in a prestigious European uni. my intention is to study in the US after graduation.
But I m not sure about the procedure. I know, u gotta do USMLEs, which I haven't yet tried. Any International student out there with the same mission? If yes how about if we team up in this process, step by step?
there is no reason people should have replied don't waste your time. They have no clue what they are talking about. My uncle studied in England and my preceptor is South African. I have met numerous doctors in numerous specialties that studied in countries from all over the world. Getting a residency may be a bit more difficult, but you will be able to practice here if you are competent and can pass US licensing exams.
Are you in a 4/5/6 year program? Where do you study?Hi Guys. I am a 4th yr medical student
I'm in a 6yr course, so about 2 more years to sort this thingAre you in a 4/5/6 year program?
Yep, it can be done, but each year it gets harder and harder since they are building new american medical schools and not increasing residency spots.for the past few months, i've worked at memorial sloan-kettering cancer center in NYC and i've noticed a significant number attendings who've earned their medical degrees in foreign countries. i'm not sure how the process works, but it's clearly possible. out of the 17 attendings in urology, 6 were educated in foreign countries (France, Ireland, Italy, Canada, India and Morocco).
this post is logical somehow, and really made me feel hopeless.Yep, it can be done, but each year it gets harder and harder since they are building new american medical schools and not increasing residency spots.
