    It was a reply about UNIBE in the DR, not Costa Rica.

    PAGING MEMBER: DRSVD :

    Thank you so much for your pointers , that is the cool thing about this forum . MAN , IT HELPS !

    I was hoping that you could answer something for me . In your PM , it reads that you did the ( internal rotation ) in costa rica ( INTERNADO ROTATORIO ) . Which would have pushed the time you spent in med school to the fifth year ( 5 years ) . Now did you do this because you " wanted too " ? Or did you do this because you HAD TO COMPLY with some requiste from ( E.C.F.M.G. ) or other authority in the U.S.A. ?

    I know that in costa rica no school ( only the UCIMED , which is a 6 year program ) gives an M.D. degree ( MEDICAL DOCTOR ) . The rest of the med schools give out Licenciado en Medicina ( 4 -5 year program ), and then you give the goverment a free year of your time and then the MEDICAL ASSOCIATION gives you the M.D. degree .

    Again did you do this cause you wanted too , or did you have to do this to " go back " to the u.s.a. ????

    My email is [email protected]

    DUDE ! DONT WORRY ! WHAT I AM WONDERING IS IF YOU HAD TO DO THE FIFTH YEAR OR IF THE ECFMG OR ANY OTHER EDUCATIONAL AUTHORITY IN THE USA , SAYS YOU HAVE TOO ????

    COULD THE TWO UNIVERSITIES BE AFFLIIATED ??

    I WONDER ABOUT THE " 5TH YEAR INTERNADO ROTATORIO " , CAUSE HERE IN COSTA RICA YOU GET A " LICENCIADO DEGREE " IN 4 YEARS AND THEN THERE IS THE " ONE YEAR INTERNADO ROTATORIO " , THEN THE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION GIVES YOU THE " M.D. " DEGREE .

    SOME OF US HERE PLAN ON SKIPING THE " ONE YEAR " AND GO BACK WITH JUST THE LICENCIADO DEGREE , I WONDER IF THE ECFMG WOULD LET US ( OR FOR THAT MATTER ANY OTHER AUTHORITY IN THE US ) ?

    Hey Mox! No I didn't have to do the "fifth year." I don't know what rules the ECFMG has.

    Maybe...don't know...

    I WONDER ABOUT THE " 5TH YEAR INTERNADO ROTATORIO " , CAUSE HERE IN COSTA RICA YOU GET A " LICENCIADO DEGREE " IN 4 YEARS AND THEN THERE IS THE " ONE YEAR INTERNADO ROTATORIO " , THEN THE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION GIVES YOU THE " M.D. " DEGREE .

    In the D.R. you get a M.D. after "Internado" or also known as "4th year" after 4 years. The "one-year" thing is not required by students who want to do their residency in the U.S. (this is all provided you have a Bachelor's of some sort before entering medical school!)

    SOME OF US HERE PLAN ON SKIPING THE " ONE YEAR " AND GO BACK WITH JUST THE LICENCIADO DEGREE , I WONDER IF THE ECFMG WOULD LET US ( OR FOR THAT MATTER ANY OTHER AUTHORITY IN THE US ) ?</strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">You will definitely have to call ECFMG....their phone is 215-386-5900. And ECFMG is the Authority to talk to!

    How come you have info on DR's UNIBE? Are you currently in the DR or something to the likes of this? PM me. As for MOX's question, I don't think these universities are affiliated, but then again, I go to UASD. We do "internado rotatorio" for our 6th year. It's a little longer than UNIBE, but we get a better rep. It's odd. Most foreigners end up applying to UNIBE because they offer their curriculum in english, but I've always wondered how they go through with it, considering that you must speak to patients in spanish anyway...

    You've posted in a 13 year old thread about the medical school. Have you tried asking in the pharmacy forums?
