Question Do I need to finish internship in my country?

Hey guys
Once you graduate and get your MBBS degree, in our country (not sure about other countries), you have to do 1 year of internship but you are still considered a graduate. Is it a must (better) to do this internship or can you start residency PGY1 and apply after you graduate? :S

Default Do you hold a Diploma and Final Medical School Transcript?

If you are granted a graduation Diploma and a final medical school transcript both saying that you are full graduate then you can be ECFMG certified which means you can start PGY1.

Whenever you meet these requirements (doesn't matter before or after your internship) you can start residency in USA.
