    Cheating In Medical Schools?

    Advertisements



    How do medical schools deal with students that take photos of tests and exams normally?

    Cheating...

    Sure, we have a number of students who do/would do the same by other methods if they are able. However, a medical degree isn't like an undergrad with little practical application. If you don't know your material karma will come back around to kick you in the....
    USMLE comes to mind, and I doubt anyone cheats on that exam! The lack of clinical knowledge is probably already glaringly apparent when you are in the hospital.
    Don't worry about it if you can - it's coming to them. Eventually.

    Yeah. I was talking to this lady, who used to be a nurse in the US and she said how some of the richer students would pay like 10 K and they would actually get a copy of the NBMEs and even USMLEs. However, I doubt that happens often.

    yes, i'm sure some students cheat. i think the issue is if you get caught. i've heard of two students who were caught cheating. one transferred to another program. never heard more about second student.

    Is it not cheating if students get together to intentionally take photos of the tests?

    Like from what I understood, each year they will do this in case something where to happen.
