LCME - Liason Committee on Medical Education, it's the accreditation board of US and some Canadian Medical Schools. (you can think of it like MCI)
none of the International Schools apart from US and Canada are accredited by LCME.

VSAS: Visiting Student Application System. It is only for american students or students from LCME accredited medical schools.

Hope it helps

Unfortunately no, we can not apply via VSAS. We can only apply via a paper application.

What about them? If you are from a medical school in India, your medical school is not LCME accredited.
