International Students in Medical Schools in US – An Overview

With the advent of the Internet the mode of education has changed drastically. From distance education the word has changed to Online Education where the method of teaching has become imaginary. The course materials will be sent online with the advanced learning platforms and methodologies, which they can finish at home.

Deciding if an online medical school is right for you is an easy task. With the wide selection of programs, flexibility and structuring of the programs, the online course is a great choice for anyone who is new to the field or those who are experienced and longing  to learn more.

International students are disadvantaged from the outset because less than half of US medical schools will entertain their applications. There is intense competition for the limited number of available institutional loans and grants, and private loans typically charge exorbitant interest rates and require a creditworthy US citizen-cosigner.

The number of international matriculates at U.S. medical schools is so low in part because most of them cannot afford the full cost of medical education, and so they can only apply for those several schools that provide at least some form of financial support.

Some of the Universities that accept International students for Medicine and other programs include:
•    Texila American University
•    John Hopkins University
•    St. George University, etc.

International students who come to the US for their undergraduate education are also at a disadvantage if they want to attend medical school in most European, African or Asian countries. Formal medical training generally starts earlier in these countries than it does in the US. 

Most of these countries follow the European model for medical school training where students start in a medical curriculum as an undergraduate (freshman) and spend a total of six years in combined undergraduate and medical education.
