    Hi, I'm just wondering what the requirements are for an IMG to get into a med or sci Phd programme in the US. Does it matter if I have no undergrad science background or research experience? And are any tests required e.g. GRE, TOEFL??? And what does it take to get into a prestigious Phd programme e.g. harvard???
    Thanks for any suggestions

    How would you be able to get into medical school, or get a PhD in a science with no undergraduate science? Or is that your question?

    Not all med schools are post grad. I come from a 6yr undergrad med programme.

    So anyone got any idea???

    I know that it is possible at the University of California Riverside. I personally know an individual who had a BA in Sociology from UC Berkelely who went to UC Riverside and after about 8 years received a PhD in physics from that university and is now at Harvard University as a staff member.
