A lot of Indian Students Study MBBS Abroad

Looking to study MBBS in another country? It’s a great career choice but requires good preparation, and it is important to understand why students choose other countries to study for MBBS program?

India has a great deficit of Doctors: the World Health Organization (WHO) sets the minimum ratio at 1: 1000, while it is 1:1700 in India. There are very limited seats for admission in Indian public institutions, and sometimes private institutions’ total costs for doing MBBS actually surpasses what one needs to pay for MBBS education in the US, the UK or other European countries.

There are a lot of Eastern European and Asian countries, such as Europe, China, the Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, which have been alternative places to study MBBS abroad. Indian students have been going to these destinations for decades now, and making successful medical careers. However, Europe has always been a favorite of Indian students, mostly because of the diplomatic relations that support both countries.

SEED MBBS Abroad: Your Gateway to study MBBS in Europe

In 90 years, Europe has been a favorite destination for MBBS programs, of course, specifically for Indian students, who often traveled to Europe in large quantities. Therefore, the teaching methods and curriculum caught up with Western countries, but after the introduction of the Medical Council of India (MCI) screening test in 2004, the number of students going to the MBBS course abroad has dropped dramatically. Now the number of students has begun to grow again, as many European governments subsidise foreign students. In Europe, it has about 4,500 Indian students, 80% of whom are medical students.

I have a dream to become a Doctor. Is doing MBBS and becoming a Doctor a good idea?

In India, as all of us are aware – there is a huge shortage of seats for MBBS aspirants. All over India there are nearly 40,000 MBBS seats but aspirants are more than 20 times the capacity and many go home disappointed despite preparing well and sitting for many entrance exams.

On the other hand, India has a huge shortage of Doctors. The Doctor – Patient ratio is amongst the lowest in the world. According to a World Bank report, in 2013 India had only 7 doctors for every 1000 people. Even smaller countries have better ratio than India. For example Malta has 35 Doctors per 1000 population.

In 2013 Indian Journal of Medical Research had predicted a shortage of over 6 lac Doctors in India.

Can I do MBBS from abroad?

Yes, every Indian student is eligible to do MBBS from abroad if he/she fails to get MBBS admission in India.
As a matter of fact, every year lakhs of students go abroad to pursue MBBS froma foreign country.

Is doing MBBS from abroad costly?
Doing MBBS from abroad is not at all costly.

Infact it is cheaper than doing MBBS from a Private University or a Private Medical College in India.

Government Universities of most foreign countries accept International students in their MBBS program and the tuition fee is low and affordable by even middle class families of India.

Are there any scholarships available? How do I apply for scholarships?
Yes, many Universities offer scholarships to deserving candidates.

You can contact our Counsellors for more information and guidance.

Can I do part time work during my MBBS studies?
Many countries do allow students to work part time but it is not recommended and we do not encourage as MBBS studies are tough and demanding and after college hours a student needs to do a lot of self-study.

However, we recommend that to gain knowledge and experience you should assist senior Professors at the University in their research activities. Opportunities like collecting data for analysis etc. available in almost all reputed Government Universities abroad.

Engaging this will add to more knowledge.

What are the pros and cons or advantages & disadvantages of doing MBBS from abroad?

Let us take this point by point. Some of the benefits of studying MBBS from abroad are:

– You gain an international experience which will help you in a long way – it will not only look good on your CV at the time of job search.

For doing MBBS from abroad, what points should I consider before making a choice of a country and a University?

University and country selection needs to be done carefully considering the following points:

(a) Is the University recognized by the Medical Council of India?

(b) If the University is not recognized then the degree is not valid in India.

(c) Is the University recognized by World Health Organization?

(d) Is the University listed in World Directory of Medical Schools?

(e) Is the medium of teaching English?

(f) Is the city where the University is located big & well developed with good population? This is very important to have good exposure to patients for clinical exposure.

(g) What is the exact tuition fee and other expenses like food, transportation etc and whether it fits my budget / can I parents afford it?

Further, according to the Medical Council of India regulations, every Indian student who completes his MBBS from abroad (known as Foreign Medical Graduate) has to clear Medical Screening Test in India before he can start to practice. This examination is known as “Foreign Medical Graduate Examination” (FMGE). This examination is conducted by National Board of Examinations (NBE) on behalf of Medical Council of India.

A mandatory requirement for eligibility for FMGE is that the University / Medical School from here the candidate has completed his/her education is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools

And, He / She should have studied for the medical course at the same Institute located abroad for the entire duration from where he / she has obtained the degree.

What important procedures & formalities do I have to follow in India before I can take admission abroad?

According to Medical Council of India (MCI) rules, every Indian student who wishes to purse his MBBS degree from abroad should fulfil the following criteria:

Our office and trained Counsellors will be assisting you in applying for the same.

Where all I can do MBBS from and what are the advantages, disadvantages and important points which I need to consider?
Indian students after 10+2 are eligible for MBBS without any entrance exam in:
(a) Countries which were part of former Soviet Union like Ukraine, Russia, Kyrgyzstan (Kyrgyz Republic), Georgia – these countries have well respected Government Universities that accept Indian students.

Most of the Universities in Ukraine & Kyrgyzstan have Indian Mess (including Vegetarian) facility.

(b) Philippines – which offers American Curriculum – 5 years duration – English Medium. Some Universities have the option of doing final year clinical rotation in USA.

(c) China – 5 years – Government Universities English medium.

As we mentioned earlier, after obtaining MBBS degree from abroad, every Indian student has to clear MCI Screening Test to be eligible to practise in India.

Keeping the above in mind, you should also look at the Universities which are offering MCI Coaching classes.

You can contact our Counsellors for more details.

How can I practise in India after doing MBBS from abroad?

Main Points

1. Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE) is popularly known as Mci Screening Tes.

2. This test is conducted by National Board of Examinations (NBE).

3. An Indian students, who has completed MBBS from abroad has to appear in this exam and clear it in order to be eligible to practise in India.

I heard that MCI Screening Exam is very tough and difficult to clear. Is it so?
Questions asked in MCI Screening Test are from the MBBS syllabus only.

Recommendations on How to clear MCI Screening Test:

The 300 MCQ’s in MCI Screening Test cover the entire syllabus from 1st year onwards.

Now – if we ask you to take a similar test – from what you studies in Class 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th – and with a coincidence – 200 questions are from syllabus of Class 8th, 9th & 10th. Do you think you can get 50% answer’s right?

Chances are NO. Because it is not possible for a human mind to recollect all details of what it studied in 3,4,5 years back.

Proper revision needs to be done before appearing for MCI Screening Test – only then a candidate will clear it successfully.

Where all can I practise after completing MBBS from a foreign country?
After successfully obtaining your MBBS degree from abroad you can practice in that country from where you are doing MBBS.

You can also practise in India after clearing the MCI Screening Test.

Can I work in Europe, USA or UK if I want to?
The degree which will be awarded to you is globally recognized.

However every country has different requirements for starting practice or working as a Doctor.

You have to fulfil the requirements of that country to start your practise.

Please refer to USA section below for more details about working in USA as a Doctor.

For working in European countries you need to obtain license to practise as a Medical Practitioner and for that you also need to have proficiency in local language of that country.

Why can’t i do MBBS from countries like USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc.?
Indian students, after their 10+2are not eligible for admission to various Medical Universities in countries like UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand as they do not accept Indian 10+2 as their entry requirement.

To pursue MBBS from these countries Indian students must have B.Sc. Biology degree or have to go for a Pre Medical program to qualify to appear in the entrance exam known as MCAT (Medical Common Admission Test) – and have a good score to apply to various Medical Universities. Admission is not guaranteed.

Government Universities give preference to their own citizens and do not admit International students for MBBS program. Private Universities do admit and set aside a small percentage of their annual seats for International students. Fees in these Universities are high.

CAUTION – Certain agents are promoting MBBS in Central America / North America but please note these countries are not a part of USA (United States of America) – if you choose to study there – still you have to clear MCI Screening Test.

I heard South America and Central America offers MBBS program. What are the advantages and disadvantages of studying there?
The countries in South America, Central America are basically small islands like St. Lucia, Guyana, Belize, Antigua etc.

The countries are not a part of USA or the United States of America.

The population of these countries is very little and mostly there are the private colleges who offer MBBS there – having very little infrastructure and they don’t even have own hospitals, so the students have to depend upon clinical rotations with the affiliated hospitals.

Since these countries are very small, population is little – hence clinical exposure is very limited.

How can I settle in USA after completing MBBS from abroad?
Seeking admission in a Medical University is not everyone’s cup of tea, especially in the USA. One needs to complete the ‘pre-medical’ course of three years first and after this, the further process continues. If you be able to secure admission in a Medical University, the study of 4 years is required to be a Medicinae Doctor (MD). This degree, here in India, is equal to what we call MBBS.

4 Years to study MBBS Abroad (MD) Split into Two Parts:

(a) First is Pre-clinical
(b) Second is Clinical, that includes clerkship or internship in distinct areas

When the aspirants enter in the last year of their MD, it’s time to get ready for Postgraduate Residency Programme and apply in their respective areas of specialization. The positions are then given with the help of a National Computer Matching, that pairs candidate’s preference or choice with the applicant’s preference of program. Postgraduate Residency Programme varies from three years to 7 years depending upon the selected field – for instance, consists of 3 years after the completion of medical school for pediatrics and internal medicine and ranges to five years for the General Surgeon and almost 7 years for the Neurosurgeon.

This period does not cover research years (usually ranges from one to four years, when the aspirant aspires to proceed with Ph.D. degree)

In India, Residency Programme is equal to PG Programme or Post Graduation training. When the aspirants complete their Residency Programme, they require performing fellowship, a formal full-time training that focuses on a selective area of specialty.

Fields that is highly specialized requires Fellowship, for instance, surgical oncology, endocrinology, cardiology, pediatric surgery, and Oconology. Usually, Fellowship includes research work and duration varies from one to three years. Here in India, Fellowship is similar to which we call Super Speciality.

To become certified from Board and start practice, after the completion of Residency Programme and Fellowship, the surgeon or physician needs to clear oral and written examination in their respective field.


What is the application process for medical college / university / school in the USA?

Medical Colleges & Universities in USA have a very streamlined process. The first part is to fill out the forms and send the same application to as many Universities & Colleges that you may desire. But before applying for any Medical College in the USA – you should be aware that the acceptance rate of International Students is very low. Every student needs to take MCAT and score during their Graduation years. MCAT is a computer based test which takes between 4 to 5 hours to complete. MCAT tests the knowledge of Science and also reasoning and writing skills. MCAT can be taken 3 times in a year and there are unlimited attempts.

Once you are satisfied with the MCAT scre then the next step to be taken is fill out the application form. Most Medical Schools, Universities & Colleges in USA encourage students to apply through American Medical College Application Service, popularly known as AMCAS. With the application letters of recommendation are also required. There is no financial aid or scholarship available for international students to pursue MBBS from there, and the costs are very high. Only few universities (that too private) accept International Students.


What are the steps to becoming a medical doctor in the USA?

After class 12th (for Indian students), a 4-year college or university degree is required which complies with the Pre-Med requirements. Pre Med requirements includes the following subjects:

1. “Freshman” Chemistry with appropriate laboratory courses.
2. Biology with laboratory courses
3. Physics with laboratory courses.
4. English with laboratory courses.
5. Calculus including advanced Maths classes & statistics.

Recommendation letters are also needed from professors who taught Pre-Med classes. To distinguish yourself from other applicants and stand apart from the crowd, it is recommended that during pre-med years you should actively participate in hospital volunteering, attending accredited pre-med camps and get additional certificates like first aid etc.


What is the sections of the MCAT Exam?

MCAT – Medical College Admission Test consists of 4 sections:
1. Physical Sciences – Physics & Freshman / Introductory (Inorganic) Chemistry.

2. Biological Sciences – Biology & Organc Chemistry.

3. Verbal Reasoning – reading comprehension section consisting of passages and questions.

4. Writing Section – Two Essays need to be written and each essay is to be completed in 30 minutes.


Are there any scholarships for doing MBBS in USA?

There are no scholarships or bursaries available for international students looking to study MBBS in USA. The entire study is to be self-financed or education loan is to be taken.


What is the process for Indian students to do MBBS in USA?

After class 12th, an Indian student who wants to do MBBS from USA should do the following way:

1. Complete Undergraduate Program / Pre-Med of 4 years.
2. Complete 4 years in a Medical School.
3. Residency Training which can be 3 to 7 years

In the Medical Schools the 1st 2 years are focussed on study and laboratory training. In the last 2 years clinical experience is offered where students work with Physicians and get trained.

System of Medical Education in USA

The education system to become a Doctor in USA is completely different than the way it is in India.

1. MBBS is known as MD (Doctor of Medicine) in USA.
2. A students qualified for MD after completing 4 years Bachelor degree.
3. After completing MD a student must complete a residency program which is of 3-4 years duration depending upon the specialization choosen.



The most important requirement to begin a Medical Residency in USA is to complete the United States Medical Licensing Exam, popularly known as USMLE.

In the USA, one of the important criteria to start Medical Residency is to clear the Medical Licensing Examination, commonly perceived as USMLE.

The United States Medical Licensing Examination should be cleared by every aspirant desires to practice medicine and be a physician in the USA, doesn’t matter if the aspirant has undertaken his/her training from the country itself or abroad.

No shortcut is there, every step of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) complements one another. Each and every step is equally important for the medical licensure readiness assessment.

The examination has been divided into three stages and aspirants need to pass these stages in order to obtain the license.

Generally, First and Second Steps are followed in the Graduation years and the third step is taken during the 1st year of Post Graduation training.

There were no restrictions until 2012 on the number of times an aspirant can give the exam but now the situation is completely changed as the attempts have been classified by the Government. Currently, the number is set at 6.

The 1st and 2nd step of USMLE Examination can be attempted in any part of the world.
The 3rd step should be taken in the United States of America only. When an aspirant completes Step 2 of USMLE, he/she needs to look for Residency Programme in the country itself and then comes United States Immigration & Naturalization Service (US INS) for authorization of employment.
