Medical School in Argentina


Hello all,

I am a graduate of a 4 year institution and currently live in Southern California and I am thinking about medical school in Argentina due to costs.
I am fluent in Spanish (not medical Spanish), my parents are from Argentina and I have visited many times, I also hold dual citizenship, from the US and from Argentina, I also still have some family in Santa Fe.

I know this topic has been done before, but I believe it is a few years old now and I was looking to see if there was anything new about the subject.

My goal is to eventually practice medicine in the US.
I have read about the many obstacles an FMG has to go through to be accepted into a residency in the US after studying in a foreign country, so I am looking for anyone that has gone through this or is currently going through this.

Thank you!

My wife did this but it was several years ago. The Student Doctor Network might be a better place to post this question, there is a section for IMGs.
