Foreign MBBS GRADUATION definitely is valid in India. At this point, you need to know the merits and demerits.

Well to start on with the merits:

Merits of MBBS from Foreign Countries

  1. You get to Study abroad
  2. You get interact with people from all over the world, different languages, culture… (guys, it is an experience!)
  3. No burden of clearing NEET
  4.  Lower cost of studying (than private colleges in India)
  5.  Coaching for USMLE (PG entrance exam in USA.. you can go for a direct application after your graduation )
  6.   You get to know diseases prevalent in that country. Standard textbooks are followed worldwide (so your degrees are equal)
  7.  Exposure to modern equipment’s and medical facilities…. that’s something medicos in India miss, unless they study in the top colleges of India where a few get admissions. (Being a graduate myself, I didn’t know surgeries were performed by robots in USA!!)
  8.  You get to work and study…you can make your pocket money!!

Demerits of MBBS from Foreign Countries

  1. Coming back to India, as a foreign graduate, you need to clear FMGE exam and do a year of internship (where you to learn the disease pattern in India, trust me, that helps you a lot) in an institution of your choice to practice as a general practitioner. Clearing FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduates Examination) may require a 6 months coaching and you can’t practice until you clear it. I put this 1st cause this is THE ONE demerit I really tell people when they ask me.
  2. MBBS in India takes five and half years; but a foreign medical degree ‘ll be in a period of 6 years.
  3. You ought to learn the language of the respective country your studying in.

Final Words

Well, so I think I could clear a majority of your doubt bubbles! But you still may have some queries left; you’re always welcome to post your queries below which will be attended at the earliest possible.

I wish you all the best & as I always say.. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS… Never stop them for others!! God bless!
