Hi,

I have been studying for a year in one of the medical colleges and then migrated to 2nd year of the other university.

1. My older medical college is not in IMED list and is only recognized by PMDC (Pakistan Medical & dental Council). But the medical school i graduated from is recognized by WHO, IMED and many .....Will it make any problem ?

2. I migrated to Second year just by showing my first year mark sheet of older school and i was accepted.. So now what should i do with transferring credits ?? whats harm if i choose answer 'NO' .

3. My Second university foreign student office staff is most laziest staff and i know they would hardly do something with my verification procedure.. any suggestion to keep my work going through fast track... Thank You

You should have no problem because you will graduate from a school recognized by IMED.

You have to tell them about the transfer of credit unless you can manage with your new school to make them ignore the fact and does not tell about it when you graduate from them.

Most schools do mention the credit transfer in the final medical transcript and that's what will your second school do.

You have to live with your destiney, there's no shortcut, your second school has to be involved in your ECFMG registration.

When you apply for the USMLE, the ECFMG will verify your credentials with your medical schools. Practically this is before taking the first exam.

As StepTaker told you. You have to ask your second school (ask them, will they mention about the transferred credit in your final medical school transcript when you graduate later on?)
Transfer credits = transfer of curricular hours and units from one school to another.
