    Note To All High School Graduates

    Those Of You Trying To Take The Shortcut
    Please Note
    SEVERAL (NOT ALL) States Require 60-90 Credits (2-3 Years) Of Undergraduate Course Work For Licensure In The US

    Get An Undergraduate Degree from the US or CANADA Before Coming Here !
    Completing All 10 Semesters At Windsor Will Get You An MD Degree, But What's The Point Of Having An MD Without A Residency !

    Think Before You Apply
    Do Thorough Research
    Don't Just Come Here Because Your Parents Want You To Be In Medical School !!

    here's a link to ohio state medical board
    http://med.ohio.gov/pdf/statutes/4731.pdf
    on page 14 of the pdf clearly states
    The minimum requirement shall be two years of undergraduate work in a college of arts and sciences approved by the board in addition to a high school diploma, or the equivalent of such education as determined by the board.

    Hi there,
    thanks for all the information. I am considering Windsor for MD1 for January. I just wanted to ask you, I would like to practice in NY. I will have 60 credits by this december. these r the sceince courses which I have taken (general chem1, general Bio1, API, APII, Microbiology, Statistics, and other humanities courses). But I wont have an associates degree. will these courses count towards my 60 credits or r there special courses which I must take to satisfy this 60 credit requirement. thanks for the info.

    from what i know, you should be fine since you have 60 credits.
    where did you complete your credits? remember that courses done at a university-level are valid..

    yes they are the same, because when I took them at a community college they were transferred into a senior college. yes they are at the undergrad level. I also emailed the NYS DOE about my courses that I took and if they would be okay for me to practice in NY. I'm waiting for their email, lets see what happens. thanks though.
