Medical studies will always remain the forerunner in the brightest of the student minds. Often considered as the most challenging and extremely rewarding curriculum these medical studies consistently top the academic charts with the number of students opting for medicine based studies and courses each year.
The practice of Medicine is a primary requirement and has been in existence since the advent of mankind and it is most often associated to the religious and the philosophical beliefs of the society. Today’s students have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to choosing a medical program in their parent country or abroad. Few things that need to be factored in are the given pointers.
Competition for entry to Medical Institutions
The entry into a medical school in India either to a Government or Private institution is very competitive. With the advent of the unified merit based admission system in India entry into a Medical college is next to impossible without the right merit and credentials. Considering the high competition many students from India prefer to do these medicine courses in universities abroad.
Affordability for the courses
Even after cracking the toughest of the competitive examinations and getting an allocation in the medical institutions few students drop out of the course considering the exorbitant fees involved for the completion of these courses. With multiple options in foreign universities a medical course with a cost lower than that in India has become a possibility now.
The quality of the healthcare education and the healthcare facilities available in the parent country
In a highly populous country like India, the healthcare facilities available can vary from the basic primary healthcare centers to highly sophisticated technology driven private medical facilities. Currently these facilities are taken care of by the doctors and technologists educated from the home pool and a miniscule of highly specialized professionals from abroad. With wide parity in healthcare and the unavailability of the latest medical technological facilities all through the country, the medical education takes a hit back
Studying Medicine abroad is a great option considering the above factors but it is not to be taken as an easy option out for a student aspiring to become a medical professional will be dealing the factors like local language communication and will have to be resident in a new country for the complete duration of course which is approximately a good 5 to 6 years unlike other bachelors or masters programs in Engineering, Arts and Science. Nevertheless, studying a medicine degree in a foreign country can be a very rewarding personally as well as professionally. We suggest that the students consider the study options carefully before choosing their Alma Mater.
Selection of the Country of Choice:
Make a wise choice of the country to do your medicine degrees after considering the following pointers
Budget of the program for a year and the entire course duration
Living costs involved
Weather conditions in the country
Course content and the language of instruction
Safety of the students
Total Indian student population in the selected country and University
Cultural and Language differences
