    Hello I am not sure to go there! Some people are telling me to go to the US cause I will take longer in UAG.

    Can I work at US if I have study there?

    As long as you can pass all the USMLE and state boards my understanding is you can practice pretty much anywhere in the U.S.

    Sending my application in by the end of the week! Hope to see you guys in January!!!

    Hi, I'm from Puerto Rico and I'm already accepted to the entering class of January 2011 because I initially was applying for August entering class but had to change my start date... Anyways, even though I know many people there, until now I do not know anyone starting on January... so hope to get to know some of my future classmates here!!! As I said earlier I know many people there, so anything I can help anyone with just let me know

    From what I've gleaned from reading UAG's information and here in these forums, it does take longer, typically 5-6 years, because the nature of Mexican medical education is different than American medical education. In many countries, aspiring doctors don't go to college and then to medical school, they go right into medical school. Also UAG requires some external internships in rural areas if you want to get a license cedula to practice in Mexico, but most Americans skip that and head back to the U.S.

    Recently I had the same doubts about the time because I was told by some that there where cases that would finish in 6 years. So I when to their office in PR and asked about that. They told me that normally is 4 years of study in mexico and the a 5 year of intership that is done in the US or PR, in the case of puertorricans, no more than that. According to them the cases of 6 or more years are students who don't pass the steps, but in my opinion I think now passing the steps on time is somewhat more controlled by the new rules that you must pass at least the first one to pass to 3rd year. Well that's my opinion and what they have told me...

    Somebody asked this a week or two ago, and I politely suggested they do a search, since this is a common topic, and one that you can find ample discussion about on this forum.

    However, since that thread is still on the main page, and titled accurately, "Safety", I will just suggest that you go and read that thread instead.
