Not able to pass the USMLE is not the driving force for doctors becoming nurses. It's just an easier pathway to get to the US with an immigrant visa and therefore easier for nurse/doctors to be closer to the training programs they want to go to. Having an immigrant Visa is more attractive to prospective training hospitals because they do not have to deal with the immigration hassle. What good will it be to any doctor to go to the US as a nurse if they cannot pass the USMLE anyway, unless of course they just want to go to the US to live there and work as a nurse. Most training hospitals in the US have doctors in training that are graduates of those hospitals I mentioned earlier. Once in a while you hear of a graduate from an unheard of Medical school in the Philippines getting in, but very seldom. There are quite a few graduates of Southwestern University and Cebu Institute of Medicine, both in Cebu, that I've met so that is a good option for you. Lately I've seen graduates from Western Visaya Medical Center in Iloilo, so again that may be an option. Have not met anybody from Siliman University, as of yet. Does not mean they do not exist, just have not met any and I've seen many doctors that join our missions, majority from UST, UP, FEU, CIM, SWU, MCU, etc. None from Siliman.
