Science Lab Student
Why should Indian Students pursue medical studies abroad?

Large number of medical aspirants in India check out the options to pursue PG Medicine courses abroad to become qualified doctors.

This is largely because of three major factors:

1.  Studying PG 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 specialize in a particular field of medicine.
3.  High fees charged by private colleges admission processes.

Thus, the overseas 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 pg medicine.

At 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.
