Get crowned with an M.B.B.S Degree !!
And Serve the world as an eminent Doctor !!!
Ever since China threw open its doors to overseas students, its medical colleges have begun wooing Indian students in a big way. Competitive fee structure and a handsome package of facilities have become a better bet for those interested in making a successful career out of medicine. Chinese colleges, most of them under the Government, offer an international MBBS programme for four and a half years and one-year internship. The total fees for completing the entire programme comes to around Rs. 13 lakhs to Rs. 15 lakhs (The fee structure slightly varies with institiutions).
There are about 150 medical universities and colleges, which are out to accommodate and expose Chinese medical education to the outside world. They are presently concentrating on luring SAARC countries. India and Nepal have shown good response. The Bangladesh experiment is not that successful because of gaps in adjusting academic schedules.
Taking advantage of the high demand for medical seats and inadequate supply in India, the universities have presented opportunities for aspirants to do a ” World class MBBS Degree ” in China, by presenting their credentials: a listing in the WHO Directory of Medical Schools, recognition by the Medical Council of China, and approval by the Ministry of Health, People’s Republic of China.
The universities consider the English medium of instruction and international curriculum (on a par with the Medical Council of India syllabus) as the significant factors that would make Indian students turn to China.
Students who got above 50 per cent marks in Physics, Chemistry and Biology are eligible for admission into MBBS.
A student opting for medical education abroad should take the permission of Medical Council of India (MCI). They will scrutinize high school and educational qualification of students. On completion of MBBS, a student will have to appear for a screening test to become eligible for practicing in India or to pursue post graduation. The test is conducted by the National Board of Examinations, Delhi, and one should secure above 50 per cent marks.
The Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to issue eligibility certificate to students joining only in the 30 Chinese medical education institutions that are approved to admit foreign students. The eligibility certificate is mandatory for every student going abroad for medical education. Those obtaining the certificate would only be allowed to appear for the screening test, conducted after the completion of course, for practicing in India.
According to information posted on the MCI website, it received a letter from the First Secretary(P-II), Embassy of India, Beijing, giving the list of approved institutions and also the steps taken by the Chinese authorities for strengthening their medical institutions offering the course through English medium for foreign students. The letter states that the report was published in the official ‘Guangming Daily’ on July 26.
The Alpha Academics will take up the responsibility of getting the admission order to join the Chinese institution of your choice, get the Visa, help getting the Eligibility Certificate from the MCI, arrange air-tickets and an executive will accompany with the students until they are safely housed in the hostel allotted by the institution.
Indian students passing out with merit are free to get employment in Government and private medical colleges in China. As proficiency in Chinese language is required to communicate with patients, courses are being offered from the first year of MBBS for those willing to learn. It is an advantage to learn the language spoken by about 25 per cent of the world’s population, says Dr. Yuanhou.
