    Sounds like a good plan if you are a US Citizen or Green Card Holder. Getting B1 visas to come to the US is getting harder by the day. If you cant get a visa, then you may be better off completing your MBBS from India and then take the USMLEs and then apply for residency.

    I think you should go ahead and apply for the transfer. Most likely the school will ask you to start from semester 3 onwards. Please see IAU for a list of classes that are offered during the 3rd and 4th semester. Its better to do an MD program from the Caribbeans rather than a MBBS from India - eventhough after you complete residency, it is supposed to be equivalent to that of MD. Also try contacting some one in Admissions Office to see what classes will transfer. Here is the contact info - Contact Us

    MBBS is done in India after high school. MD programs require pre-med/undergraduate credits. Hence for the same reason, students in the MD program will be more mature and have a better knowledge base. Further most caribbean MD programs have the USMLE Preps as part of curriculum. Plus, if you attend a school such as IAU, you can take the NBMEs at the end of each semester and therefore prepares you better for the USMLE. For these reasons, I'd go with a caribbean MD rather than a MBBS from India.

    I know medical programs in moost countries in the East are straight out of high school. However in the west its not like that. Further, most states in the US require you to have undergraduate pre-med credits for licensing purposes. Most states require a minimum of 35 credits. Some states require 60 credits and at least four states require 90 credits for licensure. Hence you are better off starting your MD after getting an undergrad degree or atleast 90 credits.

    Yes, thousands of Indian graduates are in residency and are practicing physicians. At IAU, most Indian professors have completed their MDs after MBBS. See IAU for more info.

    This site will give you contact details of each state licensing board. It also lists the website for each licensing board, with information on premed requirements. Just look up the states where you are interested to practice and see what their requirements are. There are probably less than 10 states in the US, that dont need any premed requirements for licensure. Most of them do.
