Question ERAS Education Tab for IMGs?

hi,

in eras there is a tab which says EDUCATION and the following lines below it

This page allows entries for each Undergraduate and Graduate School you have attended. Complete the required fields and Save. The page will refresh to allow additional entries. Since most non-U.S. educational systems do not follow the U.S. model, almost all students and graduates of international medical schools will indicate "None." In the rare case where this question applies, please answer all questions marked with an asterisk

what do we enter here in this tab?

thank you

What did you study in your Undergrad Course in India? Was it "Pre Medical" College?

They are not talking about high schools here, there are talking about college degree (bachelor degree) that you have taken before going the MBBS Medical school.

I have the same question. I'm an IMG from Egypt and I got straight from high school to MBBS. It's a 6 year complete program. No premed.
What do I write in the education part?

Default Write None!

I too am IMG and we go for MBBS directly after +2 school. No undergraduation or graduation college (bacherlor) degree in between. So NONE must be the answer.

Most IMGs should leave the education tabs empty (none).

The premedical undergrad system is particular for the US educational system only.

yes you are right most of IMG write none but I did put my post graduate ( Board in my country ) and list the education tab as " other". and its ok as i have been told cause there are no other tabs to put your post graduate studies (like master or Phd or board taken in countries other than usa) , but if you dont have any you should use none . good luck for everybody , hope everyone can get matched.
