It is a known fact that medical education in government colleges in India is much cheaper in comparison to foreign countries. However, the opportunities provided in international universities are much more advanced and updated. They thrive on innovation and technological advancement so the students willing to pursue education/ courses can get the best of the facilities.
However, when it comes to a course in the field of Medicine, it is important to list all the pros and cons of a country’s university, facilities and opportunities. Since the opportunity in India is limited, the availability of seats in private institutes are less in comparison to foreign countries. With a high demand for Medical Universities, foreign institutes have made it affordable for students, so that students do not hesitate in following their dreams.
As there is a high demand from Indian students for a degree in the field of Medicine, universities make sure that the cost structure is designed in such a way that it does not hurt their pockets.
Fee structure of countries like Russia, China, Georgia and Philippine vary between Rs.25 to Rs.40 lacs. If the candidate wishes to opt for countries like USA/ UK the fee structure is a bit higher, varying between 100 lacs to 150 lacs. And Caribbean medical schools having hospitals in USA cost about Rs. 35 lacs to 45 lacs for entire 4.5 years studies including clinical rotations in US hospitals.
Furthermore Russia, China, Philippine, Georgia do not provide options for further education (post graduations) in the field of medicine and the success rate of FMGE is also very low. Whereas Caribbean medical schools provide options for Residency in the USA along with practicing in the USA and other multiple countries. Also, the success rate of USMLE is much higher as compared to FMGE.
The medical field is said to be vast and has abundant career opportunities for students. They believe in providing world-class education with technological advancement. All they need to do first is undergo a screening test and upon clearing the same, candidates are free to choose whether to practice in India (after completing a one-year internship in India). Here students and parents need to think about career and PG in abroad because if student is willing to pursue residency in US hospitals then students those pass from Caribbean medical schools will get opportunity for matching program whereas the students who completed MBBS(MD) from India or other countries need to complete their clinical rotations from US teaching hospitals (which cost about $100,000) and spend at least 18 months for it. Many students that opt to start their clinics, can also work as a Medical Officer in any of the country’s government projects simultaneously. Lastly, if they want to share their knowledge and experiences, candidates can work as medical professors in various universities.
MBBS courses across the world are almost similar and hence to get a doctorate certificate candidate must complete the course with a minimum duration of 4.5 to 6 years, divided into clinical and non – clinical.
Students going abroad to pursue a degree in Medicine need to know that the course is successful only when the candidate get success in Foreign Medical Graduate Exam. Only then they are eligible to practice medicine in India, except if they complete their Residency from US or Masters degree from UK.
Research about the institute and the country which the candidate chooses to go in. As a huge amount as well as time is invested in the process, therefore it is always advisable to be careful before taking any decision.
