Because most IMGs do not have premed education, they go straight from high school to medical college.

Americans have to go to premed college before they enter med school.

This issue discussed last year here

I assume that your undergrad college was not part of the requirement to enter medical school because you said you did not finish it, yet you are a medical graduate.
Therefore, you don't need to mention it.
