                shall establish criteria by regulation for the approval 
                of institutions outside the United States and for the 
                determination that such institutions are comparable to 
                an institution of higher education as defined in

                                graduate medical school outside the

                                of title IV; and
                                    ``(bb) at least 60 percent of the

                                graduates of the graduate medical 
                                school outside the United States or 
                                Canada (both nationals of the United 
                                States and others) taking the 
                                examinations administered by the

                                Medical Graduates received a passing 
                                score in the year preceding the year 
                                for which a student is seeking a loan 
                                under part B of title IV; or
                                    ``(II) the institution has a 
                                clinical training program that was 
                                approved by a State as of January 1, 
                                1992; or
                            ``(ii) in the case of a veterinary school 
                        located outside the United States that does not 
                        meet the requirements of section 101(a)(4), the 
                        institution's students complete their clinical 
                        training at an approved veterinary school
