  Hi! I'm an old foreign graduate, did my medical graduation in 1988. I have a green card. Please help by telling me if I should go for USMLE path or not. I'm 55. Is it too late for me to pursue medicine in USA? Will I get a residency after doing USMLE? Or I should consider doing something else? Please help. Thanks and kind regards.

  YOU CAN DO IT YOUR SELF. JUST BE TRUTHFUL TO YOUR SELF AND DO THE WORK. Lets get 260+ Don't forget you need to be able to make associations to excel in this test. Just memorizing is not enough. You need to make associations, this is paramount for the usmle. http://www.bu.edu/jmedday/McCahanMedEdBooklet2006.pdf you need to do this in this order. The 5E phases applied to usmle preparation ENGAGE > Engage student and elicit prior knowledge DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENT You need to find who provides the best diagnostic assessments for the usmle step 1 ______________________________________________________________________________ EXPLORE > Provide hands-on experience of what needs to be learned (reviewed or reinforced). 1) Kaplan Videos, 2) Kaplan notes, 3) Pathoma notes and videos, or Goljan path (no audio only RR 4th ed) 4) FA not older than 2 years edition (read once and reference page numbers from Kaplan, Pathoma or Goljan on the right margin of FA) 5) read FA once more making notice of the referenced page numbers on the margin to clarify concepts detailed in Kaplan, Pathoma or Goljan ______________________________________________________________________________ EXPLAIN > Develop basic science explanations for experiences and representations of developing understanding (can you EXPLAIN what you learned in the EXPLORE phase?) FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT Kaplan Q bank (mix of recall, analysis and application questions) / some debate on the use of USMLERX (mostly recall questions) before the Kaplan Q bank ______________________________________________________________________________ ELABORATE > Extend understanding to a new context or make connections to additional concepts through student planned investigations SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT OF INVESTIGATIVE OUTCOMES USMLE WORLD Questions and annotation of it into FA (study annotated FA twice) ______________________________________________________________________________ EVALUATE > Re-represent understandings, reflect on learning journey and collect evidence about achievement of outcomes SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT OF CONCEPTUAL OUTCOMES Do all recommended NBMEs study/read your annotated FA in b/w recommended NBMEs Your NBME scores (evidence) will tell you if are ready for the USMLE step 1. This is the best preparation any IMG can do to score very high in the USMLE

SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT OF INVESTIGATIVE OUTCOMES
USMLE WORLD Questions and annotation of it into FA (study annotated FA twice)
______________________________________________________________________________
EVALUATE > Re-represent understandings, reflect on learning journey and collect evidence about achievement of outcomes

SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT OF CONCEPTUAL OUTCOMES
Do all recommended NBMEs study/read your annotated FA in b/w recommended NBMEs
