Registration European ERASMUS Program, Credit transfer!

2 Questions about Credit Transfer:

1) Has anyone done an Erasmus program? (=study one year in other european University different than yours). Is that consider as "Credit transfer"???

2) In my credit transfer certificate, from the University where I did one year of my medical degree, my second last name is not mention. ECFMG is going to reject my apply???

Thanks a lot guys for your help! cool Forum!

Sloan.

Hi, thanks for replying

I have not applied yet, I stumbled on this issue half way through it....
I'm Portuguese (hi neighbor ) i went for 5 months to Turkey to do clinical rotations only.

I don't know what to do!! I wish I could omit this... I don't even know if credits were transferred or not... If we don't do it what harm comes from it, we passed the subjects!... So did you added "clinical clerkships" or "other medical school attended"?

So my current status is: collecting information I'm gonna call my med school tomorrow, maybe they can advise me on what to do...

Hope everything works out for you

Erasmus is an European Union exchange program with tons of requirements for the participating schools and there is anagreement between those schools as long as everybody follows the rules. You don't even pay the fee in the school you're visiting, you pay "back home" so you practically are a student of your home university. Your final school transcript will not mention it at all.

Transfer of credit is if you "transfer" from one school to another, e.g. start in one, then go to another..., or that's what I believe.

Default Need help with transferred credits

Hi,

I have some doubts about the transferred credits, I have already called two times to the ECFMG and I got different answers each time, so I hope you can help me.
I did my 6 years degree in the same medical school (in Spain), and we had some "free elective credits" that we could take anywhere we wanted.
I did a clinical clearkship during my summer break in a hospital that wasn´t my University hospital, I attended a congress in a University from a different city, and I did an English course and get the First Certificate of English from Cambridge University. I did all these things in my free time.
All these 3 activities appear in my final medical transcript as passed subjets and my University gave me free elective credits for them.
Do I have to report them as transferred credits?
Should I report the summer clinical clerkship as trasferred credits (in my medical transcript they gave me 10 credits for that) or as clinical clerckship?

Thank you very much
