    minimum time required for transfer students

    Advertisements



    TO SMU-INFORMATION
    I have a question,if someone had MD,residency,license,and board certification,grad of D.R. unapproved CA school,can they apply to do MD with SMU into clinicals and what is the minimum time required for transfer students?2 yrs? we realize CA will not be possible in the future for us but getting MD from CA approved[if you get approved] will sound better than people knowing a person is a grad from unapproved school.
    Thanks

    I would contact Darryl Frazier directly with that one, I have to admit I'm stumped by that situation.

    is california the only state that you want to practice in?? theres many states that you can practice in after graduating from a medical school thats not approved in california. if california means that much to you, you should consider only a california-approved medical school.

    A question

    A question for ASIANDOC:

    Why waste all your money and time from medical school in dominican republic, doing residency, and getting licensed to now start clinicals at SMU??? that sounds so odd to me. why not work in a state approved by DR and live happily ever after?

    ....

    I went to DR with anticipations that the school will do its parts by applying to all state boards,if a school attracting US students its obligation to seek approvals in US otherwise that is administrative malpractice.I do have licenses in TX,MI,and boarded in IM and GI and well known in my speciality and has no interest in CA ,but states now seeking CA reports [many states] and will not look good if people know you are a grad of unapproved school.
    the lesson I learned:never go to a school that claim they are cheap because they will not be able to apply for anything and always blame their action on low tuition,CA issue is not an isolated issue,large number of states using them for their applications decisions.
