For Israel, international medical graduates must pass a compulsory government licensing exam (a multiple choice exam in Hebrew) before applying for a provisional license, in order to do a 12 month internship (“Staj”). Provided there are more than 10 graduates wanting to take the examination in another language other than Hebrew at any one sitting, there is a provision that this exam will be translated into the language of those graduates. Alternatively, those graduates who have passed the Step 1, and Step 2 CK, of the USMLE before applying for internship would be exempt from this government examination.
For Lebanon, a licensing exam – the Colloquium – is required before registering in the Lebanese Order of Physicians.
For Hong Kong, graduates must complete a 12-month Pre-Registration Internship, then pass the Licensing Examination before applying to the Medical Council of Hong Kong for full registration.
For other countries, please ask your Admissions Adviser.
