Medicine Abroad For Indian Students

Why should Indian Students pursue medical studies abroad?

Large number of medical aspirants in India check out the options to pursue MBBS and PG Medicine courses abroad to become qualified doctors. This is largely because of three major factors:

    1. Studying medicine in India is tough due to limited seats.
    2. PG in Medicine is equally tough and entrance test for PG in India is a tough nut to crack especially when it comes to specialise in a particular field of medicine.
    3. High capitation fee charged by private colleges and malpractices in MBBS and PG admission processes.
      Thus, the overseas MBBS and PG options have gained prevalence in the healthcare sector for Indian student eyeing towards medical abroad study destinations. Past few years have seen an average increment of about 15-20 per cent increase in the number of students going abroad for studying medicine.

At both- undergraduate and postgraduate level- to choose the institutes abroad for medicine or medical studies is a humongous task considering the variety of Medical Overseas options available along with the tedious application process and Visa Processing to those countries. We at S V Videsh Vidya help our students aspiring for MBBS and PG medical studies abroad to ease the uncertainty around the entire process and give tailored made MBBS and PG overseas options at MCI approved Universities abroad for Indian students.
