Foreign medical colleges attract Indian students


Chinese medical education has caught the attention of aspirants in the last few years for simple reasons such as easy availability of seats, affordable fee and good academic facilities .

The season of medical admissions is almost over and those who have failed to get into their dream course will now be looking for alternative options, mostly foreign countries that attract medical aspirants with lesser fee, international exposure and quality medical teaching.

Countries of former USSR have been a favourite for Indian students for decades, while Chinese medical education has caught the attention of aspirants in the last few years for the simple reasons such as easy availability of seats, affordable fee and good academic facilities.

“While a seat in a private medical college costs no less than Rs. 30 lakh, the same course can be completed in China or former USSR countries spending half of that,” says Rajaram, managing partner of Medico Abroad.

“Moreover, the academic period has also been reduced to five years in China, and the Medical Council of India (MCI) has also permitted to complete their one-year apprenticeship in India making it an attractive option for Indian students,” says Jaipaul Reddy of St. Joseph’s Consultants.

Admission season for these countries will be completed by September. But there have been many apprehensions over the foreign educated Indian medicos clearing the mandatory screening test conducted by the MCI. Mr. Rajaram says the first batch of Chinese students has now come out and they are all working in top hospitals in Hyderabad such as Yashoda and Osmania General Hospital.

In fact, the first batch students vouch for the quality education provided in these countries. M. Sanjeev Kumar, who completed medicine in Ukraine and now doing internship at Osmania General Hospital, says the quality of education is good and importantly it gives them international exposure.

“Most of my seniors are now in USA and the U.K. practising there after clearing their exams. In fact, we can practise in Dubai and Riyadh without clearing any exam and this vouches for the recognition of our degrees,” he says.

Also, these countries follow the American medical system unlike India where the British system is followed. B. Venugopal Goud, who did his medicine from China is now practising at the Yashoda Hospital in Malakpet and says Chinese medicine is much better, given the quality of hospitals and exposure.

“Last year, an MCI team visited my college and impressed with hospital facilities advised us to complete internship there itself,” he says. “Medicine is the same everywhere and it depends on us how good we want to be,” he advises the aspirants.

G. Radhika, another Chinese medical university product and now practising in Yashoda Hospitals in Secunderabad, advises aspirants to study in China without any apprehension. But they need to focus on education and not deviate from their career path. The Chinese package starts at Rs. 2 lakh a year, while in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, it ranges from Rs. 1.7 lakh to 2.5 lakh.

Mr. Jaipaul Reddy says most consultants who send students have also set up their own offices and tied up with Indian hotels to provide Indian food. Parents are constantly informed about their wards’ academic records and the life there. Hostels for foreign students are built with three-star facilities within the campus thus providing safety to them.

Regarding screening test, he says many coaching Centres have come up now and this has improved the pass percentage to a great deal. Consultancies are also organising coaching classes once students come back.

If I recall correctly, that happened in 1992. I always keep a pair of shorts handy in the winter just in case.
