Cool Might be a stupid question

Which year is considered my graduation year,is it the one that i finish the last year of school? or is it the one that i finish my internship?
Say i finished my last year in July 2010 & started internship in September 2010 which is gonna end on September 2011 so is my graduation year considered 2010 or 2011??
The reason I'm asking is that we consider the graduation year here in Egypt is the one when we finish the internship not the sixth year of school so wanna make sure it's the same way in the States.

Arrow The date is on your Diploma and Transcript

The year you get your "medical school transcript" and "Graduation Diploma" is your graduation year.

If your medical school gives you these documents before the internship then that's the graduation year if they give it to you after the internship then that's the graduation year.
