Salam all,
I'm almost done with my 5 yrs at FJMC and have my final proff coming up in December iA. I plan to take my step 1 and 2 sometime before Sept 2015 so I can apply for residency during that time. Now I'm thinking that what exactly is the process that I'll have to go through next year. Since my proff is in December, they usually give the result in April of next year. However, I heard that they dont give the actual MBBS diploma until november/december of 2015. Why it takes so long, I dont know.
Since residency applications start in Sept-Dec of 2015, dont I need my diploma when applying for residency? What if it comes too late? How exactly do IMG's deal with this?
If anyone has any info on this, please let me know!
