    IUHS offers the preclinical portion of their MD degree program online.

    I do not know how their graduates fare in terms of obtaining residency positions or licenses to practice, so be sure to do your research.

    A Doctor of Medicine is a graduate program that combines science and clinical courses such as anatomy, microbiology, radiology, pediatrics, oncology, and internal medicine. Many programs will provide a number of opportunities for hands-on practice. Even though my attend distant learning classes online, several universities hold commencement at several locations. You could even stop taking classes for many weeks during the year without withdrawing and without throwing your student loans into repayment. That is a strong argument many people look at when enrolling in distance learning classes.

    I doubt this would be a quality program.

    Soooo OK, you are looking for 1) a distance-learning medical school that will 2) offer credit for failed coursework from a previous medical school, and 3) allow advanced standing for previous master's degree work?

    Wowzers. You might want to just go ahead and start your own medical school, at this point... then you can give credit for whatever the hell you want. Watching back episodes of "Doogie Howser, MD" and "General Hospital" and "ER" and "Grey's Anatomy." Owning a stethoscope. Stitching up an orange with yarn. Practicing good oral hygiene. Going to the doctor (as a patient). The world is your oyster!

    Agree with devildoc, you wouldn't want to go to the school you are proposing.
