    FMS question for steph (...or anyone else who cares to answer)

    Advertisements



    howdy

    i went to an undergrad university where tons of ppl were premed so it's pretty interesting for me to hear how other ppl from my class fared with med school admissions. anyway, since about 3 years back, i've been hearing of a few people each year going to poland for med school, and was just wondering if you know anything about what's out there...because to me, poland seemed pretty random. i was under the (perhaps insular) impression that if you were going to go foreign, the carribean was the first place to set your sights, but maybe i'm missing something. oh yea, this question may seem completely out of place in the SGU forum, but it's because this is home base for me as i'll be a 1st-termer in february...and was just curious as to what schools in poland have got over a place like SGU...is it just one FMS over another? any thoughts are appreciated

    Re: Polish Schools

    Try the Eastern European forum, as people there may be more knowledgeable... I don't think many people in the SGU forum have experienced Polish schools...

    i know of a couple of people who went to poland. they went to "hope medical institute" in krakow. you can get into this particular school without a degree or an mcat. as long as you pass the wallet biopsy you will get in. i looked into it and the board members for this particular school seem to be all over usa/canada. they do their rotations in chicago and are restricted to two hospitals. whether those hospitals are green book or not is another question you may want to contact a student or their office.

    i too once considered going to eastern europe for the experience. but when it came down to future decisions i had to choose the school with the best reputation and standards. our school and ross grads are treated pretty well and are known all over.

    I dont know a thing about it to be honest. Never met anyone who's done it. I agree that the EE forum might give you some good answers. good luck.
