I am from India , in India the MBBS course is 4.5yrs and 1yr of compulsory rotation (internship)
I have completed the MBBS course of 4.5 years and joined the compulsory rotation in march 29 onwards & received provisional degree, now the problem is that the ecfmg is asking whether i am a student or a graduate? As per Indian perspective i am a graduate but what i have heard is in America an intern is known as final year student of medical school, now am confused what should i click on student or graduate .
2ND QUESTION IS CANT UNDERSTAND WHERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FORM 183 FROM IWA

PLZ ASAP SOLVE MY QUERY

FURTHER I AM DECIDING TO take MY EXAM IN AROUND JUNE 15TH, I WILL GET MY ORIGINAL DEGREE IN/ABOUT MARCH 31 2012....DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE TO SEND TWO DOCUMENTS REGARDING MY INFORMATION, TRANSCRIPT TO ECFMG AT TWO DIFFERENT POINT OF TIME i.e 1) right now and then 2) one after getting original degree ...if 2times its gonna be too hectic for me ,isn't there any other alternative in this case

In USA, if you have a final graduation diploma and a final medical school transcript, you are considered a graduate.

If you don't hold both of these, then you are considered student.

If your status changes between now and then, then yes, you have to send the documents again.
