    where would you do your experience??for that you need some license, and your requirement is fulfilled when you have that much experience. u got my point?
    e.g if you do your practice in China, you will be having Chinese Ministry of Health license, so you can apply with that license and experience for it.
    Dont think of PMDC every where :p ;) ......
