1.what does it mean that i have to send them my medical school diploma? is the course i did before enrolling in med school? if yes, i have done a UNSW pre-U course then i did a BSc Biotechnology. So do i send in my transcripts or just the certificate of the degree?
The Diploma is your final "Medical" degree that granted you MBBS, MB, MB BCh, BAO, BMBS, MBBChir, MBChB, MD, DO, ...etc.
BSc is not in the list as far as I understand.
If it is not in English then you have to translate it.

Also, recently I noticed that they started requesting that from the medical school rather directly from the applicant though am not sure about it. Let's see if other people post their experiences in this thread.

2.i have yet to pay for all the details i have entered into the IWA. i think i have 14 days. do i pay within these 14 days?
Yes, you have to pay within 14 days or your application is canceled and you have to then re-apply.

3.my school isnt a participant of ECFMG med school WP. but i wanna ask my supervising lecturer to register. can she register instead and be in charge on the school behalf? because this is a non-English speaking school and this lecturer im talking about it helping us register for the usmle but she doesnt understand much so im doing the research for her.
Yes, absolutely. That's a Nobel work what you are doing. If you succeed you will help all the generations of students that graduate after you. Tell her to go to this website
https://ecam.ecfmg.org/login.aspx?app=EMSWP to try to register your school with the EMSWP. However, I think the dean or a higher official should be involved also.

4.after i pay everything ($880 for me), if i decide to change the location of my PTC, can i still do that? also once ive paid, can i wait till July to send in my forms and documents? the documents are at home (Malaysia) and im in Indonesia.:confused: i will need to get the photocopied version of the transcripts etc certified by a lawyer in Malaysia before i can send them in.
You are not going to be allowed to sit the exam until you verify your medical school credentials. So it doesn't matter if you pay now or later. Ultimately, you have finish all the papers before your are granted a scheduling permit.

I am 42, and is Malaysian graduated orthopedic surgeon. do i need to do the whole usmle steps to do a fellowship in orthopaedic in the US? and can I do this at this age???:sleepy::notsure:
Orthopedic residency is very competitive and you need to pass all USMLE steps with high scores and get some US clinical experience before they can accept you.
