Candidates who miss securing seats in exams like NEET and are not willing or in a financial position to pay the large sum in the form of capitation fees prefer to pursue medical education from a foreign university. Doing MBBS abroad is a very common option that Indian students are exploring for the last few years. And it has proved to be a good step because we already have MBBS pass-outs who pursued their medical education abroad. The chance they took is indeed reaping them good dividends for they chose the right university and earned good grades through hard work. Apart from that they have had an exposure to advanced techniques at international level, they got to work on better machines, were provided with better learning environment etc. which reflects in their caliber and helps them stand in good stead.
Candidates are exploring various options to do MBBS abroad. For example, Philippines is a great choice for Indian students wishing to pursue MBBS and shift abroad. There are many reasons for the same. The fee for MBBS is as low as ₹15 Lakh (for 5 years course). Other advantages or points in favor of Indian students are that their local language is English which offers a great convenience for Indian students. The weather is much like what we are used to in Mumbai and Kolkatta. And above everything Philippines is a good option for students who plan to appear for and crack USMLE for pursuing PG in the US.
One thing to bear in mind is that standard of education and course for MBBS in Philippines is pretty high and requires hard work on the part of candidates, hence students who are bright and think can cope with such high level education should choose this country for MBBS education. Academically weak students or those having other limitations like health issues that can stop them for studying for extended hours should avoid Philippines. Pass percentage for Indian students doing MBBS here has been pretty encouraging too.
So if you are planning to do MBBS abroad, explore Philippines or better still talk to your best consultant who may offer more information as well as better options as per your requirements and needs. All the best!
