OUM cannot offer advance standing, for several reasons: a) Our program is case-based so it would be impossible to isolate which courses you may have had and which you have not; b) If you have been out of school for 10-15 years, you are going to need the basic science review to pass USMLE; c) Some students who have attended Caribbean medical programs that offer advanced standing, after investing the time and money, have been denied medical licensure in certain states. If you’re looking for a school with this option, OUM is not for you. Be diligent about understanding your state’s requirements regarding advanced standing or credit for previous training. The advantage that your prior education will give you at OUM is that these past studies should make learning the material easier for you. Also check with the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (www.ecfmg.org). In order to receive your certification upon graduation, which all graduates of foreign medical schools need to practice in the US, you need to spend four years in medical school.
