    There is a member who frequents the EE forum, who attended a russian school and left within the first year. Couple of problems which always seem to crop up are:-

    1)- Poor knowledge of the english language (Professors, school staff etc.)
    2)- Poor facilities.


    Although the above, i do suppose depend on where you go.


    A search should throw up a few of old threads on this.

    Good luck.

    I may be wrong, but I dont think there are any Russian schools that teach only in English. And if there are any, why someone would want to attend such a school is beyond me. They're either all in Russian, or change to all Russian after the 1st 2-3yrs.

    As far as studying in Russia, you'll have to form your own opinions, but my advice would be to look elsewhere. Russia has a lot of problems right now. It seems like a medical degreee from a Russian university is only good in Russia. I have quite a few Russian friends, and even the Russians dont go to school in Russia. They go to other countries to get their education. That right there says a lot about the state of the Russian education system.

    I considered it for a bit as well, but if you have any hope of returning to the US it is probably not adviseable. Besides the problems with language there is a HUUUUUUUGE stigma with those schools in the US...I mean carrib grads are looked down upon by some people in the us just like DO's...but that is just because of stereotypes and really just a hurdle to overcome...with Russia it COULD (not saying would here) be a deal breaker....while Russian doctors are held in fairly high esteem by some people (my friend from estonia to name one) the idea of the corrupted, poorly funded eastern european schools runs pretty rampant...as well as the general lack of experience with with the USMLE. I am not saying that is the case..I haven't been there so I can't testify...but I am just repeating what many doctors I know have said from a wide range of medical backgrounds...

    if you plan to practice in the US, i would try to get into a caribbean school, you would do all the clinicals in the states where you would make connections that can potentially help you land residencies.
    If you wished to go the russian school route, i would just advise to take the Kaplan prep course for the USMLEs

    Those looking for russian med schools should first of all personally visit the univs to see the things themselves. Take a dose of the office scenario in the med school, the teachers, accomodation etc so you should yourself come to know what it is upto.
    good luck
