    School teachs in English and tuition is $3500 a year. Take a look at
    their 'agency' who books people there.

    they claim you can stay in the hostel for $250/year. Almost looks too good to be true. Suppose this is for the adventurous type 'doctor of the future'

    well

    There are these schools such as this one that offer incredibly cheap tuition and easy acceptance. It's *possible* that you might learn enough to pass the boards on your own (even without any school at all) but how are you going to get a residency? It's possible you might get a general practitioner residency, but that's probably the best anyone can hope for.

    Russian school

    How can you say you won't get a residency - medical industry in America is not a closed door, many foreigners have managed to get residencies in America, some of whom are even from Russia. Apparently, 1/4 of doctors currently working in America are from a different country.

    Keep reading...

    Sanjuro,

    It looks by the number of your posts and the comment that you've made--that you are new to these parts. The difficulties of US IMGs getting residencies are well-known to folks who have been reading this board for a while.

    Certain states, such as California, are notorious for their restrictions against US IMGs from some schools. (Which may or may not have something to do with the school's quality. A school could be good (think Saba) and has not yet been visited by the committee from California who decides whether a particular school is seen as legit by the state licensing board.

    Good luck to you,

    heart

    i m a student from spsmma

    hi
    me a student from spsmma
    would like to make some comments about this post
    1 www.spsmma.com is not the official web address of the school the its the web address of a srilanka based agengy sailan international ...
    the official webaddress is www.mechnik.spb.ru its a russian site but u can find an under construction english section that gives u an idea of the school

    2 i would suggest all to directly contact the univ via the email address previded in the contacts page....as u can all understand agencies are never reliable...there are some russian agencies which u can rely upon but if i tell the name of those i may appear that i am a sub agent of the agency so i would like to keep silent on that matter...but if any one plans for this particular university ii would strongly suggest him not to go via Sailan international atleast

    3 u can find info about the school at my post in easrern europian n russian school - facts about russia
