* Cheating on the USMLE
  cheaterhater - 07/19/08 13:47
  Does anyone know what measures are being taken to weed out cheaters in the residency process. I personally know of one person who had access to all the questions and scored a 99 on the exam on the first try. Based on my personal experience with this person, I know that she could not have done it on her own...I think that it would be a shame if this person was allowed into the US medical community. Are there any ways to report cheaters?

  Why worry about a cheater?

If they really did cheat, it will show in their interview, and if they make it through the interview it will show in their performance in the program.

Let life sort them out.

Because if a person cheats and got 99 and you are worrying about it, then that means you didnt get 99 yourself, which means the place you think they stole is not a place you would have gotten anyway.

How can you be so sure that the person cheated? Unless you were in on the cheating scam yourself.

You make sure you are 100% correct, and not envious that someone got a better grade.

on clinical experience because all his/her fault will be revealed on patients who are being
In medicine a doctor can not make fraud or trick more than once.The field of medicine is not like politics.It is impossiple to play with life.Doctors are dealing with life or death.
