It can be very challenging for students to gain admissions to medical schools in India. For many students and families, a better option is to consider completing an MBBS abroad.

The MCI, the Medical Council of India, must approve any medical school that an Indian student wishes to attend if he or she wants to practice medicine in India after graduation. MCI has approved universities and colleges in many different countries to allow India students that meet the criteria of the school and that are accepted to earn their MBBS abroad.

While students can study in Russia, China, the Ukraine, Poland, Australia as well as many other countries around the world, these are some definite advantages in completing your study in an American University. This includes universities in the West Indies, which offer beautiful, safe and state-of-the-art campuses and accommodations as well as a lower cost of attending a continental American medical school.

See a New Country

One of the reasons that students may choose the West Indies as their destination to complete their MBBS abroad is the difference in the Caribbean from India. On the island of St. Lucia, for example, students will have a range of opportunities throughout the school year to explore, see and try new activities and to enjoy this island paradise.

Study Under Highly Recognized Faculty

For many students, choosing an international location to complete their MBBS allows for training and study under some of the most recognized doctors and researchers in the world.

American universities and colleges often have guest speakers, guest lecturers, and even faculty members that are highly experienced and experts in their own area of medical expertise. This can provide insight and help students to develop a focus for their own careers as doctors. Go to website for more information.
