    This letter is irrelevant to most people on this forum, except students/grads of Irish med schools. Caribbean schools are not "twinning".

    hence why its in the MAIN medical forum, not just posted in a caribbean site...

    and, well, it may have an effect if they consider having basics in one country and clinicals in another twinning, since we all have that...and licensure exams would have to be in country of origin of the med school...ie CARIBBEAN exams...

    seems though its pointed more to the Duke affliated program in singapore and keeping that more of a singapore resident program...

    issue

    Glad you saw that...it occurred to me that as Singapore students venture out they have complex rules to meet and should carefully study before going to schools not on the list of approved ones

    Hmmm....

    I'm assuming that Duke-NUS graduates aren't considered as FMGs to Singapore.....

    What about?

    Would this affect KMCIC-AUA grads (if one of them hypothetically wished to practice in Singapore)?

    correct

    Thats correct. Duke is a Singapore school

    Its grads obviously are FMG for the US
