Medical Training Programs


Oxford International Development Group’s current medical diplomacy focus is to provide training opportunities in Switzerland for Iranian physicians and medical students.

Courses will include:

  • United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) test preparation

Kaplan International (UK) will deliver test prep and other courses under the terms of a U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) License granted to OIDG. Kaplan USMLE test preparation courses offered include Step 1 Basic Health Sciences, Step 1 Question-Based Integration, and Step 2 Content Review.

This will be the first time Kaplan test prep courses will be offered exclusively for Iranian medical students.

  • Specialized short-form certificate courses and workshops

These 1-week workshops and courses will cover a wide range of specialized topics in the medical and dental sciences covering latest techniques and technologies used in practices in Switzerland, Europe, and the United States.

All courses will be supplemented by modules on health diplomacy structured specifically for Iranian physicians and health sector professionals planning to engage with, and serve patients from, the international community.
