Tips For Getting Through A Medical School Interview
Other residents and graduates are on the website, or OUM staff can try to arrange contacts…you will have to check. Because we had three children and I was in school (not to mention the added expense), I did not accompany him on any of his interviews. My impression is that you would be eligible for financial aid and admission at most US medical schools as a GC holder.
You would most likely need to fulfill the pre-medical requirements (at least via a post-baccalaureate program, if not a bachelors’ degree) and take the MCAT. Many disappointed applicants talk away with resentment towards the schools involved. Most medical schools do not consider the applicant seriously if he has never been in a clinical setting.
The American Medical College Applications Service is not the only place on the Internet to fill out your medical school applications. I submitted my AMCAS application on August 4th, 2015 and I was verified at the end of August which had me a little worry since I wanted to apply early rather than later. I must have asked 50 questions, but they kindly dealt with all my questions in a timely manner, even spoke to me on voice Skype…I think you can just call them directly too. Out of all those who apply, only half of them will be accepted into medical school.
We have a list of 10 schools that offer the program – wonder if there are more, specially in the lower ranked schools. Again, this is something that you won’t have to worry about at the top schools, but some Caribbean medical Schools don’t use English as their primary teaching language. The best way to get a feel for schools is to speak with professors, stroll around campuses, and meet up with current students.
To acquire a license to exercise medical science from the government, all students must also complete 1 year and 3 months of internship. I also went deep into Google posts to see what people said about OUM, and then posed some of those questions to the admissions staff. As stated above, most US medical schools require at least one or two years (usually more) of studying in the US (at undergraduate level) before applying. Whereas students can theoretically decide on a whim to apply to other types of graduate and professional programs, med school usually requires at least some degree of specific undergraduate preparation. As a student at Yale medical school you are going to get the best education possible but you will surely work for it! There are however several medical universities and medical institutes with their own medical colleges.
