classes, and they are qualified to practice medicine here if they pass
their state medical board exams. I'm not an expert on it, but I don't
think it's so much that the degree is different, but that the exams
are. The ones in my classes appear to go through some ESL training,
take their boards, and then practice medicine. So, for practical
purposes, a MUDr. seems to be equivalent to an MD. The story I usually
get is that a MUDr. is trained more low-tech (depending on the country)
than the American MD is, and this is where the problems passing the
board exams arises.
