    Applying for undergraduates?

    Advertisements



    Hey
    I'm a student of medicine in Iran...
    I'm going to continue studying in US, I wonder to know if US is accepting undergraduates easier or postgraduates?
    For a good resume, are these enough? :
    1- Good points in USMLE step1
    2- Good points in TOEFL iBT
    3- Good CV
    4- Some voluntarily programs like vaccination
    5- Recommendation from professors
    Are there any things that will make my resume a greater one?


    Thanks

    My mistake.... I thought that since you posted in the forum of this medical school, you might've been planning to attend a medical school in the Caribbean.

    Are you planning to complete undergraduate medical education in Iran and then come to US?

    Are you planning to try to stay in the US after your post graduate medical education?

    Yes, I'm currently studying in Esfahan University of Medical Sciences and I'm a 3rd year student...
    I need to study 3 more semesters in order to move to US, cause I've not studied pharmacology yet
    So I have enough time to make my resume a good one

    Your school is not listed in IMED. What is the total duration of your course? I see that the duration in other medical schools is given as 7 years. Is a semester in Iran equivalent to a year? Will you get your MD in 3 semesters?

    and do you plan to come after completing your MD?

    If you wish to practice in the US, doing post-grad in Iran won't help you much. It's better to rock the USMLEs, get yourself some interviews at some foreigner friendly hospitals, get them to sponsor a visa and so forth.
