    First of all, there are people that can give you much better and precise info.. but your voice came to me pretty much in trouble, so I wanted you to open whatever the problem/s was/were..

    Congratulations.. 1 year is behind now

    i want to know if it is appropriate to read mostly in english or in russian..
    For many East European med schools its told that the programs in native language are cheaper and harder.. and the programs in English (the programs mainly for the international students) are more expensive and easier.. actually once I remember I've read here that the professors treated the international students with less care at the beginning, but if you were really good, then they took you seriously and taught better.. there are also some easily get you in and kick out at the end of the year.. you may have high or low quality, its not their problem.. you are the decider at this point..
    I mean, you have options(to transfer?), but they look so that they are the elements of the same/similar quality platform..

    i do speak russian quite fluently but literal russian is quite difficult for me..
    In any case its good.. I dont know how it is in Russia, but in E-EU med schools the last year you take place in clinics as intern (they say also clerkship), and because you need to get in contact with the patients and listen to their history, to be fluent in native language is great.. otherwise you will be just another speachless and clueless international student looking around right in the middle of a hospital.. naturally you cant develop your practice.. so, it is a very important asset in both native and English programs..

    and what are some of the things i need to do to keep myself at par with other international students because i plan taking usmle after med skul..
    Many of other international students are not doing good.. You need to hang out here for some time, see who is who and get in contact with the quality ones.. there are guys that work hard and preparing for USMLE, while taking their regular med education..
    May I ask;
    Where are you from?
    Which school?
    Why do you want to take USMLE?
    Did you experience or observe anything wrong, like loose teachers, not to be able to reach more knowledge about a subject, discriminative attitude.. etc?

    i'm originally from Ghana
    studying in Dagestan state medical academy
    i wish to do residency in internal MEDICINE in the US
    the system of teaching is theoritically poor as compared to that in my country... but practically it's better.. they are more interested in the practical stuffs giving less attention to the theory aspect..
    they are so interested in marks...

    drprince7 to my knowledge, if you consider to work in US, then you need approval of your school.. if it takes place in IMED list ( https://imed.faimer.org/results.asp?...urope&psize=25 ), it tells that your school is recognized by US states.. but some states have some additional criteria and they have their own list ( Welcome to the Medical Board of California - Medical Schools Recognized by the Medical Board of California ).. if you have your education in an English program of a school and if you consider to work in one of those states, then it must be written explicitly on the right of the school name that it is a program "in English"..

    For example: None of the programs in Romania or Russia is approved in this special list (California approval list).. because in Poland there is racism I didnt even look at it.. but in Hungary or in Czech Republic there are some English programs that take place in this Ca-approval list.. there are other countries that have English med programs as well, you should check.. of course if you consider to have your education in English..

    no sweetheart.. I had been an IT professional, but for last 12 years I take care of my daddy, who had CVA.. but if someday I need to work, I think this will be related with health care..
    Then, you will have been graduated, and you will give me an insight about what exactly to be a doctor
