Study Medicine in the US is a dream for many ‘aspiring to be doctors’. The path to study medicine in the US is long and hard, but the reward for those students who want to study medicine in the US is a secure, well-paying job that you can be proud of. In recent years, many students particularly seek to study medicine in the US , or a US accredited medical degree abroad.
University medical study in the US is a 4 year course divided into two roughly equal components: pre-clinical (consisting of didactic courses in the basic sciences) and clinical (clerkships consisting of rotations through different wards of a teaching hospital). This program leads to Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) or Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) depending on the medical school; both degrees allow the holder to practice medicine after completing an accredited residency program.
How to Study Medicine in the US
To study medicine in the US, students should make sure they have completed a four-year bachelor’s degree, with all of the prerequisite classes needed for the particular medical schools being applied to. The prerequisites vary from school to school, but almost always include the following science courses: biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. Some schools may also require that you have taken other humanities, english, math, and science classes as well, so make sure you look into medical schools while you are still an undergraduate so you can choose your classes appropriately.
Also in most case you will also need to have completed the MCAT test, which stands for Medical College Admissions Test. The test will determine your ability to think critically, problem solve, write clearly, as well as measure your knowledge of various scientific concepts. A good score on the MCAT is key to getting into a good medical school.
Assuming you now have a bachelors degree and a good MCAT score, your next step is to actually apply. If you are a student from other than that of US , you are in bit disadvantage. Many publicly funded colleges are required to put part or all of their state funds towards students who are residents of the school’s state. This is mainly to ensure that there are enough doctors for the area, but it can put international students at a huge disadvantage in the selection process. But you can always apply to private universities. Many such universities have campus in US and offshore/ international campuses in different countries offering accredited US medical degree.
