    Bad (and, alas, completely avoidable) situation. Contact the countries' medical boards directly - nobody here is going to have the straight scoop for you, and you don't want to take the advice of some 19-year-old premedical student in Omaha (nothing against Nebraska, pre-meds, or 19-year-olds, mind you) on something like this.

    (Also, please follow up on the other places where you posted this exact question. It's pointless and annoying to have it in twelve different places.)

    Yes. It's for your own experience. But you should know better than doing pg in any country means you can only have a license to practice in the locality. But I believe your home country will surely accept that but you just have to write their own exam. You can still practice in the US if you pass all your USMLE steps with good points. Holla at me for more information, I can be of help.

    As a neurosurgeon? Are you kidding? S/he can ONLY practice in the US if s/he:

    1) Passes the USMLE Steps, and frankly, anything less than a 99 on any Step isn't going to get it done.
    2) Can match into a Neurosurgery residency in the US, which is nearly impossible for an IMG/FMG - and highly competitive for a US grad.
    3) Then COMPLETELY re-does his/her neurosurgery residency (maybe receiving one year off for his overseas training). It's a seven year residency at most places in the States, not four.

    Don't pee on someone's head and tell them it's raining... the chances for a Ukraine-trained neurosurgeon to practice neurosurgery in the States are somewhere between "ridiculously slim" and "don't be a doofus."

    Sorry, you will have to be ECFMG Certified, and re-do all 3 year of PGEs.

    Hey Mr Bulgaria,

    You are only here to advertise your own school. The guy was talking about PG in Ukraine and not US and he wasn't specific about specialty, I only told him he can even practice in the US if he passed the USMLE with good points that's all. Don't ever bring that your big mouth to rain insult on people here. Bulgaria is not even as rich as Ukraine you guys were just lucky to be in EU. And listed as the poorest EU country alongside your neighbour Romania.

    Watch your mouth next time, aiight!
