Russia IMGs from Russia; Anything extra needed!

Hi,
Are there any IMGs who graduated from Russia and are applying for 2013 match?
I'd want to know if it makes any difference, are Russian graduates with English medium degree preferred or not preferred or if they need to do anything different or unusual...

Hi, if your english words are clear and understood by a non-russian guy then you should be fine. You don't need to do much, you may practice reading loudely from medical books and let somebody judge.

Connect with Russian IMGs by clicking the Russia tag link at the bottom of this thread.
They must have been applying for this year and next year match.
