Question Interruptions and extensions in medical education....

HEY GUYS .... how bout getting supplementary exam or detension from one prof(exam).....

for example in pakistan MBBS is 5 year degree but i got it in 6 years and every year i got supplementary exam in each prof..

here is post by sabio and he listed following points

7- ECFMG to Medical School Forms
These forms you do not have access to it and you are not allowed to send them to your school, The ECFMG will send them.
They will send one copy of your 345 to tell the school that you allowed them to ask about you.
They will also send your Diploma (that you initially sent to them see step 4 above) and they'll ask the school to authenticate it.
They will also send a form called (Verification of Medical Education) the questions in that form are these;
  • what was the requirements before you entered the school
  • how many weeks of medical education you completed
  • what degree was awarded (if you are a graduate)
  • asking to verifying the attached diploma
  • dean or other authorized registration officer's signature, date, and name
  • any interruptions or extensions in your medical education
  • any disciplinary probation you had or currently have
  • any professional misconduct that you have during your school years
  • any negative reports about you in the school
  • any limitations or special requirements by you

so if i completed my exam in 6 years instead of standard 5 years is it to be noted and asked by ECFMG ??

IS THERE ANY WAY TO HIDE OR MITIGATE IT??

Yes, you have to report it.

The only way to hide it, is that you forger the papers.

When ECFMG catch you, they will ban you from US practice forever
