    Any other schools that don't require USMLE's?

    Advertisements



    I was recently dismissed by a Caribbean med school (one of the "big 4") for not being able to complete all graduation requirements in the school's allowed time frame. I had passed USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CS, but not Step 2 CK. I was 8 weeks shy of completing all clinical rotations.

    I know Atlantic does not require any of the USMLE's to graduate. Are there any other Caribbean schools that do not? I spoke with Atlantic admissions and they said I'd have to do 36 weeks of clinical electives if I transfer in order to graduate. I want to go to a school that doesn't require boards and has the minimal amount of clinical electives required. I don't care about practicing medicine anymore. I just want the M.D. so I can look into alternative careers like pharma or hospital administration. I have an MBA already, and think an MD/MBA combo would help me land a job. Thanks for any advice.

    Hey!

    Go to Avalon, not Atlantic and I don't think you have to redo all the clinical's that you have already done it. Believed it or not! if you pass your CK, you can still get a residency. So, don't kill your goal & hope.

    Good luck
