Transfer of credits means if you have transferred from one medical school to another before you get your graduation degree.

I think the confusion with the Kaplan people is that they think your MD is a basic medical school diploma because in USA they call fresh medical school graduates (MD).

But the MD in your country is a postgraduate degree and it has nothing to do with your medical school.

Your MD is not recognized in USA, any postgraduate degree overseas is not recognized in USA.

All you need to submit when you apply is your MBBS degree. Forget about the MD.

Transfer of credit should be done if you have done your MBBS in two medical colleges, like first two years in one college and then last three years in another college. Other than that, you don't need to bother about transfer of credits.

Your medical school transcript is sent by your college to ECFMG when ECFMG request it, you should not send it yourself.

Check your final medical school transcript. If it mentions transfer of credit, then yes you have to tell ECFMG, if not, then you don't need to tell them.
About, your MD, please read Sabio's responses above.

Bump!

What if it does mention transfer of credits but they're referring to undergrad credits, is it still necessary to tell ECFMG?

Thanks.

Default Exchange counts as a transferred credit?

Hi I am studying in a Mexican school and I did an exchange in Europe for 6 months in 6th semester, in my final medical transcript those subjects appear like exchange instead of saying ordinary like the subjects taken at my school, I called ECFMG and they told me I needed to ask my medical school how are they considered. Do you anything about this?
