    Merit/Award Certificates from KMCIC ported to AUA?

    Advertisements



    Hello Tipton and other Guys,
    One of my family members just got an Merit Award and a Certificate at the recently held KMCIC Annual Day. The certificate states "KMCIC" on the top. I understand AUA and KMCIC are the same from a rotation and final degree perspective.

    But when it comes to residency and state licensure, the hospitals and every State only care about AUA and not about KMCIC as the degree will be from AUA and not KMCIC. If so, how will this certificate be useful for the student when it states KMCIC and not AUA?

    Will AUA oblige to send out new award certificates stating AUA in it upon transferring to the US after 5th Semester?

    In my opinion, a certificate with KMCIC text is worth nothing in the long run.

    Save a copy of that certificate so you can mention it on your residency application. It's not a huge deal but it helps. The only award I have on my application is my Research Day award from some AUA conference. But at least I didn't have to leave the field blank.
