Details of the Medical School

  1. The new Mexico-U.S. Medical School that I mentioned has been established in 2006 and has the following accreditations:

    • Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) - This formal listing and the assignment of a code enables students to register for and take the USMLE Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3 examinations through the ECFMG - the Educational Committee for Foreign Medical Graduates. This organization also certifies foreign medical graduates for participation in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) in U.S.

    • International Medical Education Directory (IMED) - IMED is the arm of FAIMER that provides the formal listing of those medical schools who are accredited by the appropriate government agency in the country where the medical school is located.

    • Recognition of the Mexican Government (SEP)

  2. This school has a 4 year Medical Program out of which 2 years will be in Mexico and the remaining 2 years in U.S. / Mexico. The first 2 years will be the Basic Sciences program and the other 2 years will be the Clinical Sciences program.

  3. The last 2 years of Clinical Rotations would be taught in U.S. in accredited teaching hospitals. Clinical Rotations are also available in Mexico, if the student chooses to pursue his/her clinical studies in Mexico.

  4. Eligibility criteria for admission to this school is that students should have completed 2 years (including labs) course study in Biology, Physics and Chemistry in their 10+2 classes.

  5. The 4 year medical program offered by this Medical School has a USMLE oriented curriculum so that students are well prepared to take their steps without a problem. The students appear for step 1 after the completion of their Basic Sciences and then clear step 2 by the time they complete their Clinical Rotations. The School's faculty comprises of a U.S. Dean and other experienced and well-qualified U.S. Doctors.

  6. The overall application processing time for prospective student applications is about 3-4 weeks from the time of receipt of applications. Acceptance letters for eligible students will be mailed immediately after the applications are processed.

  7. The overall tuition fee for the 4 year program is $22,000. On the school's website, the tuition is listed as $26,000 but for International students who would go through us would receive a scholarship $4000 for the entire program

  8. Visa approvals for Mexico is guaranteed as the University officials have a very good relationship with Mexican Consulate diplomats. Visa to U.S. for the last 2 years of the program has not been a problem either so far for any of their foreign students. But in any case of visa denial for U.S., students can reapply for the visa again while pursuing their clinical studies in Mexico.

  9. The mode of instruction in this Medical School is 100% English and this is the only Medical school in Mexico to have English-based instruction.
