    Many people hear many different things. I think someone recently heard that the medical school I attend doesn't exist...but for some reason, I am still going to classes daily. Please don't listen to people who cannot provide you with evidence regarding their claims.

    The schools on the list allow graduates to be eligible to take the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). Only graduates of these schools in Pakistan are eligible for this exam. After passing the exam, those students are allowed to practice in the U.S. with the same rights and abilities as a U.S. graduate would have.

    CMH College Lahore is not on the list. Graduates of any college which is not included on the list will not be allowed to take the USMLE exam and will not be eligible to practice in the United States.

    Please don't discuss the qualities or application procedures of individual medical colleges in this thread. This thread is only for the purpose of discussing which schools are approved by the United States.

    Thank you.

    I argued with someone who goes to Islamabad Med and Dental College and told them it is not approved by the States b/c I didn't see it in this list. Their parents told me later that they are not stupid to have let their kids go there if it wasn't approved.

    We strictly follow FAIMER on our list updates.

You can contact FAIMER to ask whether the school will be approved in the near future or not. This may also depend on whether Pakistan's Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education have communicated their desire to see this school be approved and put on the list. If it is not on the FAIMER list (and subsequently not on our list) I would not assume that you will be able to graduate from there and be able to practice in the US.

    You've kind of answered your own question.

    However, just because a college is not currently approved does not mean that it may not be by the time of graduation. That's something you need to contact the school and FAIMER about and find out exactly where each stands in the process and what the chances are of it happening within the next 5 years.

    Let me add another perspective to this informative post. I am sure all the members in this thread are looking to get licensed in the US at some point and hope to practice there. However, there is something other than IMED and WHO approved medical school list that you are going to have to take care. It's called Medical Board of California's approved medical school list. It includes pretty much all the countries and medical schools whose graduates can practice in California. Here's a link to Pakistani approved medical schools by Medical Board of California, please make sure your school is listed:

    Now one must wonder why is this important. I mean the worst that could happen to you (if your school is approved by WHO and IMED and not by California) is that you won't be able to practice in California. But, let me inform you that there are at least three other states that adhere to this list when licensing graduates. Those states are Montana, Colorado, and Kansas. Texas also has some similar rules but I am not too sure so don't quote me on that one. So what's the point? the point is that you call up your states' medical board (or wherever you want to practice) and ask them the status of your prospective school. Well established schools such as Dow, Sindh and KE are no problem, but with the onslaught of new schools, you should never be sure.

    Another thing, Dow International Medical School is not approved by California board unless they grant a diploma which says Dow medical college. If not, too bad. And, it may never get approved because California has a history of denying approval to Medical schools that are opened to cater foreigners and not their own. I guess, the point is to move with caution.
