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.

  • Whether or not the university is having its own hospital. Because having a tie-up with a hospital is different from having their own hospital.
  • Before selecting any country, it is necessary to define your budget and requirements list down the universities of the countries that fit your budget as well as your objectives.
  • Attend counselling sessions from a MBBS abroad consultant. Indian students opting for a degree abroad should also know whether or not/ to what extent the locals accept conversation in English.
