Yes, it is really weird.

Besides, I don't think the aussies recognise USMLEs and therefore you would have to pass the AMC exams before starting your residency in Aus.

Its not weird at all...

I'm doing Canadian exams as well as the USMLEs. I plan on doing a residency in USA but if someday I want to return to Canada then I know I've done them. Might as well do the exams while everything is fresh in the head rather than waiting 10 years after your last exam.

The more tests you take while everything is fresh is smart.

I know I won't be moving to any other country orther than usa or canada, so there is no reason for me to take any other counties Medical exams, otherwise, I would.

I'm sure you are not alone.

As far as this thread Can USMLE be useful in other countries of the world?
it's mentioned that USMLE is good enough for New Zealand only and not for Australia!

here is the thing


one doctor here in his usmle orientation i go to

he says when you prepare for step 2 cs you should also prepare for Canadian and Australian cause it is the same so in one trip you go to USA, Canada and Australia

and thus you will be certified for 3 not one only

how is that

The Australian Medical Council recognize the USMLE 3 steps if u have 12 month experience in USA, then they will not ask u for AMC exams, they will give u the licence directly, also they recognize MCCQE 1 and 2 and in this case if u passed the Canadian exams they do not ask u for experience in Canada like the US case.
Anyway wish u good luck.

actually even if u have passed the usmle, which is recognized by the Australian medical authority , u still have to go under what is called , work place based assessment , it means that all the cost and study of the usmle will only enable u to skip the amc part one exam , which is said to be much easier the usmle in general

Default USA is still the best

I have friends in USA, Australia and Canada..
believe me, people of the united states are still the most accepting regarding forign cultures, ethnic groups...
While their government encourages immigration, Canadians are so conservative and, of course, heads of teaching hospitals and program directors are part of the people and have the same way of thinking
while Australia forces you to work 10 years in "area of need"
my opinion is concentrate on one destination and I think USA provides the best "teaching" chance
good luck..

Actually, while you're at it, why not give it a go and try to get licensed in NZ, you need only step 1 and step 2 CK before being able to sit the NZREX (which is the equivalent of Step 2 CK or AMC part 2/clinical part). Once you're licensed in NZ, Aus is a gimme given that their medical systems are almost the same and their licenses interchangable. And if you really want to go back to the US for training, just take the CS and step 3!!
So the equation works out to be:

USMLEs + NZREX (5 exams in total) = able to practice in the US + AUS + NZ
It's better than going the aussie route where the AMC has two parts to it and you actually end up having to sit 6 exams.

It's just a thought/thoery and I'm not sure if this will work though

Cheers

Jerry

Regarding internal medicine, what are the advantages/benefits of choosing Australia rather than USA.
Among other aspects, which is also much easier to get in ?

I thing i need to ask....

Suppose a person (IMG) passes canadian exam + Usmles+ nzrex, and he wants to become a neurosurgeon, he gets and does his residency at his home place , can he do Fellowship in one or more of the places, e.g my consultant he is PhD, MD, FACS (US), FRCS (Canada), FRCS (ireland)... however his residency was from US...

Another of my consultants he is FRCS (ED), FRCS (London), FRCS (glasgow), FACS (US), Fellow American College of Urology, how do ppl get so many degrees???
