Certificate The name of medical school degree!


I did my MBBS from China, I am applying for the USMLE. On my medical school graduate diploma and transcription - the name of my degree is "bachelor's in clinical medicine", but in my country it's known as MBBS.
On the on-line application for USMLE, they ask u to write the name of your degree.
What should I write here? im confused. will writting MBBS get my application rejeceted?

What you tell the ECFMG is the degree that you actually got from your medical school, it doesn't matter what your country provide, it's what your medical school gave you and wrote on your Diploma.
