    Getting Credit for College Courses

    So I got into Charles and I have a bachelors degree from a US University. I have spoked with the Admissions office and she said that I might be able to get credit and move into the second year. Does anyone know if it is pretty easy to advance to the 2nd year with a bachelors in bio?

    thanks.

    terms of service

    Dear Aviv,
    I just looked at the terms of service, and the way I read it, the site restricts confidential and private information about third parties being posted on the site. This makes sense.
    However, the names of medical doctors is PUBLIC information, because for the public's protection they need to know who is medically treating them and their education. Doctors must agree to this partial lack of privacy as a condition of licensure. Consequently, posting or displaying this information does not violate any privacy issues.
    Thank you.

    That has been discussed before, and the rule prevails, argue that with the moderator's, not me, let see what happens. They even make us edit the name of the President of USA, it is not your website nor mine, they make the rules they can enforce them at will, and interpret it at will, if I were you, I would not bet money on that...enough said on my part.

    Just for reference, check this explanation out, and if you want to have a chat with doc about it, I am sure you will not be the first one who has tried...

    licensure

    I just saw that the percentage of img's who get into U.S. residency is around 45%, according to the ECFMG journal. That's pretty good, but it doesn't break it out by school, but probably weeds out the dead-heads and low quality schools. I would definitely not want to be casual and take for granted that I wouldn't end up in the 55%. Bystanders who give advice in this forum who are not trying to get in a program have no skin in the game and therefore are just kibbitzers, not players. Frankly, it's like you are trying to be a tennis star, and some guy is standing on the side of the court with a beer belly and cigarette, telling you how to practice! The point is to take your school and performance seriously. Don't be a 55% donkey. I ran across a Dr. F who prepares your residency application and coaches you for the interview. It costs around $600 and worth every penny. She is a practicing physician and was on the admissions committee at Harvard. Seek out quality advice of this sort, not just anyone on a bulletin board, including me. (Hey, is that a paradox? Not really, go get your own quality advice.)

    Yes, we have been saying that since 2003 in this website, thanks for the reminder.

    Study your rear off , get your GPA VERY HIGH, do volunteer work, ace your MCAT apply to as many US M.D. programs and D.O. programs as you can, if that doesn't work then go the FMG route to a school with a good track record. You will see that repeated hundreds of times in VMD.

    Most members in this website are either medical students, residents, faculty or ex-faculty, school employees or are already in practice. I assume your comment..."Bystanders who give advice in this forum who are not trying to get in a program have no skin in the game and therefore are just kibbitzers, not players" is making reference about yourself, correct? I mean your statement that only SGU and Ross were the only routes to licensing and that ACGME regulates licensing gave us a good chuckle.

    Thanks anyway.

The point is to take your school and performance seriously. Don't be a 55% donkey. I ran across a Dr. Finkel who prepares your residency application and coaches you for the interview. It costs around $600 and worth every penny. She is a practicing physician and was on the admissions committee at Harvard. Seek out quality advice of this sort, not just anyone on a bulletin board, including me. (Hey, is that a paradox? Not really, go get your own quality advice.)
    You first need to understand that residency programs DO NOT care as to which school you graduated from (unless it's a well-known one --these are
    "usually" the ones in Australia, UK, and Western Europe.) Secondly, the residency program directors approach each candidate individually. They do have some cut-off lines for the USMLE Step scores (some programs have high cut-off lines.) Lastly, once you make this cut, then the program directors mainly look into other aspects like US clinical experience (externships, electives/rotations, observerships/preceptorships etc.) which may be farm more important, and they also look if the candidate was involved in research of some sort (in the more competitive programs, this is actually less of a norm.)

    So it's basically an individual thing. The interview is just the final part and once you've been invited to a residency program, you have a high chance of getting in (considering you got this far.) The point is to actually take your performance seriously. Yes choosing a school matters too but only so that you feel you will be able to perform better in that sort of an environment.


    Bottom line, choose your school based on where you want to end up working and try your best to get as much clinical experience in that country as you can (in addition to getting high scores on the licensure exams.) Having research always helps (especially in countries like US, UK, Aus/NZ and Western Europe)
