US follow a different curriculum for obtaining a medical degree and license to practice. Unlike India, they have a Pre-Med (four years of Undergraduate programme), MD programme (Four years) and USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1, 2 & 3) after completing all; a student is conferred with a license to practice medicine in the US.
Admission requirements to MD programme include an undergraduate degree or four years of study, preferably from a US accredited institution.
Thus for an international student it is mandatory, to put atleast four years of study after 10+2, to appear for MD programme in the US. A Pre-Med programme does not entitle you to become a doctor or guarantee admission to medical school. It just gives a bachelor’s degree in health sciences but it is a prerequisite for MD programme. The standards to be accepted into an MD programme in the US are very high. The admission to US medical schools in MD is extremely competitive and you need to score very well in GPA and undergraduate programme. So, again it’s a tough proposition.
