can any one tell me how to change oct-nov-dec slot to jan- feb -mar slot.do i need to apply again using new 2007 application material.
need your help here...

No, u need to act as follows...
In case of IWA:
Complete online part, pay fees fill certification from (Form 183-E), and send it to ECFMG.

In case of Paper application:
Fill form 176 and Form 183-E
Send all to ECFMG.

* In ur case i guess they shud reach ECFMG before 25th of Jan.
* If u r a graduate and ur form 186 is already accepted u don't need to send form 183-E.

Hope it helps.

your post helped a lot....ashwin.
my form 186 has been accepted and i have applied thru iwa.so,
1. i need to complete the online application again,
2.pay a reshedulling fees.
did i get it right?

how much is the fees ?whole fees??

but one more q how many days ideally should be assigned for revision of step 1. i mean all kap notes,kap q bank solving,and first aid etc.

i have completed first reading but dont know how to plan revision.
thanks again ash b....


drche


the rescheduling fees is 50 $... and u dont have to apply online again. there is a specific link for rescheduling..from iwa...pls see that...

and the time reqd for revision...it all depends on how fast u go...like, if u just need to flip the pages and revise, it should take abt 30-40 days ...

mcat usmle??
see, in usa after finishing 12th std , one has to complete 4 yrs of undergraduate degree in any field. if one choose to become a doctor, he will be taking the required science classes in that degree. and then in ur 4th yr he will be applying for MCAT which is equal to PMT here in india. now with the scores of MCAT , a letter of recommandation, and your previous work experience and many other things, he will get admission in to a med school.

U need to register about 3 months in advance of ur planned exam date.

Time 4 preps depend solely on ur level of previous preps for AIPG but about 1.5 to 2 months for USMLE specific studies for step1 to supplement ur previous prep.

sherly
Aim USMLE Step 1

to ans ur ques
for the 1st quest: look in to this thread more carefully and u will get the ans to what score u need to get into mediicne depart or any other depart

yes being a family practioner is the same as internal medicine here. you would need 3 yrs of residency in the medicine department.

you need to complete step 1 , 2 and step 2 csa before applying for residency in usa but you can give step 3 anytime during ur residency in usa.

you need to give usmle step 1, 2 , and 2 csa before going for any residency program in usa.

hi there
transcripts are documents which your med school provides stating how many hours of each specialty you have done as part of your med school curriculum.
regards green card....its certainly an advantage....can't say if u hit the jackpot....well don't worry about that....just try & get good scores
i hope it helped
kindest regards

hi guyz
hey i m askin silly question.wats time limit after i give step 1 n step 2 ck 2 give step 2 cs ???????is tat valid if i can give step 1 n 2 n then give cs later when i wants or we have 2 complete in given duration plz reply guyz


drche


@ mabdalla: u may try for some clerkship posts with ur uncle's help..and first hand us clinical experience is a sure way to get into the residency program, along with nice scores in the usmle.

@ henry2006: thevalidity for each exam result is 7 years. u may take the steps as u please. there is no definite order or anything to be followed. step1 and step2 eligibility periods r for 3 months at at time. and step2 cs eligibility period is for an year. that means, u may take step1 and/or step2 ck within the 3 months eligibility period assigned for u and cs any time in an year as ur elig. period says.

taking the usmle after indian pg training: 10 FAQs

Hi everybody I am new to this forum. I have completed my internship in March 2006 and now am preparing for AIPGMEE'07. Due to some personal reasons I plan to write my usmle steps while doing my PG training in India or right after that. It'll be great if some of you take your time in answering my querries:
1. What is the right speciality to do PG in to get residency slots in psychiatry and internal medicine in US?
2. During my busy PG years what is the right time to write my steps 1 and 2(ck)?
3. How expensive can the whole affair (i mean exams, round trips to usa, visa fees, attorney, interviews, matching, etc) be?
4. What are the scores like, which can fetch slots in IM and psychiatry to older (>5 yrs) graduates?
5. How far can publications and interviews help? i've heard they can turn tables.
6. Does clearing the USMLE and doing a fellowship entitle one to unrestricted practice in US even if one hasn't done residency there? Is there any direct 5-yr fellowship program in pulmonary and critical care or gastroentero/hepatology?
7. What is USCE? How can one gather USCE if he or she has absolutely no contacts in USA?
8. When does the match take place? Does residency always begin on the 1st of July?
9. Is there any medical fitness testing at any stage? If yes, what are the physical standards required?
10. With all the money the residents get after paying taxes is it possible to run a family of two residents while growing kids and repaying loans taken toward the exams?
Guys, i know my list is long and you may find some of my questions silly and boring. But please reply and help me clear all the confusions. Thanks a million!!

1. about preparation,books etc., this might help....http://www.rxpgonline.com/postt47421.html

im sure there have been additions by other members too, go and read em maan! ( i know its hard work! )

2.yes u can take CS exam, do observership on B1/B2 visitor's visa.

3.there are no scores that can grant u a residenct spot in IM or for that matter anything else. There are many factors. By and large, Psychiatry,FP and peds. are less competitive than IM.

4. u probably wont be able to take usmle in 1st yr of PG cuz u'll be working like a horse then. so take em in yrs 2 and 3.

5. expensive?? the whole affair would put u back by at least 5 lakhs. maybe more.

6. im not aware of any 5-yr fellowship in GI or plum./critic care. Anyway, forget about GI,its more competitive than cardio. YOU CANT GET IT,as simple as that (orry for being blunt).

7. Residency begins in July but orientation begins b4 that in June. It depends from hospital to hospital.

8. No education loans are available for tkaing the exams, only personal loan i suppose. Yes, on a salary of 2 residents, u'll manage to survive quite well. The kids and loans may make it a bit hard, but quite manageable.

Hope this helps.

ADIOS!

PS- I'm back!

fragile_x

1. yes i was exactly talkin bout tht. u can take the exams on B1/2.

2. u wont need a sponsor for B1/2. In fact its counter-productive to let embassy know tht u have relatives in US for the purpose of B1/2.

hope this helps.

Not important unless u flunked a subject or two. Even then they r not too important if u can manage to get decent scores.

In fact during my interviews i felt the contrary.

They kept on asking me..u have such nice scores but y didnt u get any gold/silver medal in ur med. school.

being in top5 or 10% of ur class(and tht written on mspe) or being gold/silver medalist sure helps. it does impress the interviewers, no kiddin.

Yeah.. being in top 5% certainly adds a star but what i mean is that not being there doesn't take too much away from u, if u can perform well on MLE.

Like my senior, who was a below average performer during MBBS and even flunked a subject did well on MLE n was able to defend his under performance well at the interview, got a highly competitive program.

Plus its not the gold medal but the apparent lack of it that seems to be bugging doc_g here! icon_biggrin.gif icon_wink.gif icon_lol.gif

P.S. Good luck again ari for ur match! We'll need a lot of guidance from u here in coming times. icon_smile.gif
