Question Home Country Postgraduate Training in ERAS!

Hello.. I already have completed a residency in OGBYN from India. I know there are many of you out there who are in same boat.

So when we fill out our application thr ERAS and refer your credentials etc from ECFMG its all related to graduate degree (called MBBS in India).

Any of you out there uploading your MS transcript or any sorts of credentials as well?

My LoRs from my post graduate faculty so they have mentioned that I have completed residency there blah blah blah but wondering where can we upload/submit MS training support documents.

In the same boat here but different country.
Anyway, they don't care about your credentials from a previous residency. Mention it in the ERAS CV but there's nothing " extra" to upload, just the standard Dean letter and medical school transcript. It seems weird, as we're passed Med School and already have other credentials but for the sake of applying to US Residency, the documents they want are the same for everybody, that is, your normal Med School stuff.
My LORs are also from faculty from my last jobs and training, and then from US physicians.

Any postgraduate training outside of USA is not recognized by ERAS, NRMP, ECFMG, AMA, ACOP, AAP, ACOG, ...etc

When come to USA, consider yourself a fresh graduate.
