I have a friend who graduated a Mexican medical school and was awarded a Diploma medico y cirujano which mean Physician and Surgeon. The Diploma awarded does not say Doctor of Medicine but he needs an official translation into English to apply to Excelsior College nursing program. Does anyone know if this is considered a degree equivalent to a Doctor of Medicine and the translated document would indicate this? Thanks! Also, which companies are reputable and cost effective in translating foreign credentials and transcripts?
