    Medical school diploma advice please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advertisements



    I completed all the requirements (Step 1, CS and all required clinical rotations) except CK to obtain my diploma from Ross. Unfortunately, Ross withdrew me from school after I was scheduled to graduate for failing CK the third time. And I was 2 points away on CK to pass or from obtaining my MD degree that I thought would be my career path. I have already gone through the grievance process and have accepted that practicing medicine is probably not on my plate. And I am just exploring any options available for me including other careers to pay my medical school loans that will follow me until I die. However, almost all options require a medical school diploma which I donít have to show for 5 years I spent in Medical school. Ross even refused to give me an option for masterís degree either. I have exhorted all my money/loan on Ross medical school, over 200 grand and cannot afford to pay semesters for other school to sponsor me for USMLE. Now, I donít necessarily want to practice medicine but would be nice to obtain a diploma to sprint in to another career. Is it necessary to have passed all USMLEs to obtain a diploma in all medical schools? Any less expensive international medical schools I should try or transfer to? I donít mind to sit for any school exit exams, if there is such a thing. Any advice please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There's no simple answer. Your best bet would be to finish your degree somehow (an incomplete degree is worth little nowadays even though you were only 2 points away). Call other schools individually and see what kind of options are available.
