    Advertisements



    I was wondering if anyone knew of person who have transfered into AUA after doing 2 years elsewhere and not having taken USMLE 1(Guadalajara or another carribean med school) and had to take a comp exam or do a clinical introduction portion before being allowed to take the USMLE through AUA and then beggining the core clinical rotations. Thanks

    From what I know, the majority of students transfer after successfully passing the USMLE Step 1. I think they do this because it ends up securing the school an additional graduate.

    They take transfers, but you have to pass the comp before they will certify you to take the step

    If you are from school that doesn't have shelf exam, you might be asked to repeat 4th with path,pharm,icm and comp shelf exams at the end of it.

    If you haven't taken the step 1, then then you would be put into 5th semester.
