    some newer schools MAY do this, also some online schools, but that is not a very safe route. you may have to start over

    You will have to start from the beginning, licensing laws don't allow for advanced placement.

    DO NOT GO THE ONLINE MD ROUTE!

    advanced standing is offered by some foreign schools. you won't even be able to practice in the country the school is chartered.

    at least you've got one up on your fellow med school classmates and a pretty strong med school application, etc.

    These seem to be the "Big Online 3" meaning the basic sciences are conducted primarily through distant learning. Clinical rotations obviously need to be conducted in a clinical setting. Personal opinion, I agree that there will be licensing issues. However, I don't have a problem with distant learning modalities as long as it augments and supplements some form of traditional face to face classroom. UHSA seems to do this by requiring physical attendance 1 month of every semester. Who really cares if homework is submitted online or exams are proctored off campus? With that said, clinicals can never be online! So is it really an Online MD? Not really! just utilizing technology to get the information to the students.

    I take online Harvard CME's. Does that mean the education is crap because it is online? Actually, the instruction is outstanding. I am not comparing these schools to Harvard Online but what I am saying is that distant learning is a viable option. However, until state medical boards recognize that, extreme caution should be used before investing your time and money into a foreign medical school that has distant learning options!
