Settle in USA (Low Cost)

Studying MBBS abroad require very good marks in 12th examination. So preparations of studying abroad start right from your HSE. Pathways of Pursuing MBBS in most of the European countries are entirely different from USA. Below are the three ways of pursuing PG in USA which helps you in settling in USA after completing MBBS anywhere in the world.

1. Direct MBBS in USA (The high cost, least chosen option)

Huge number of students from USA and different parts of the world attend MCAT (Medical College Admission Test), an entrance exam for MBBS in USA to get admissions in top colleges in USA. As per the USA medical education system, the exam is conducted and scores are released by AAMC (Association of American Medical College)

Its highly competitive to get through MCAT since the bachelor level MD program will be funded by US government which costs you lesser . However, attending MCAT is important to all local students since getting admission in state medical universities is also the aim of every American student. MCAT can be given after Pre-Medical course .This is quite difficult and highly expensive way to pursue MBBS in USA.


2. MBBS in USA via Caribbean (Affordable and highly chosen by Indian students)

This program can be completed without MCAT exam and the total budget of MBBS to PG courses in USA will come around 65-75 lakhs INR. It’s highly recommended for students from Asian countries. The universities in Caribbean Islands provide education for first 3.5 years and remaining 6 years in the mainland of USA. This program is till the completion of PG in USA.


3. MBBS in low cost universities with PG medicine in USA (Best route for students who wish to settle down in USA at a comparatively low cost)

Medical Education in USA for Asian students at PG level is available at an affordable cost. This route is mostly not advised by many agents due to some selfish intentions. In this century , every student has a chance of pursuing PG and settling down in USA (low to high budget) with highly recognized medical career. This option is highly recommended for students who wish to study MBBS abroad with a budget of 15-50 lakhs INR. As per this path, the MBBS can be completed from low cost countries like Russia, China, Ukraine, Georgia, Philippines etc and move to US for PG medical Courses. This way the USMLE 1 & 2 will be completed by the time you complete your MBBS and USMLE 3 can be written in USA while you go through your PG Medical Course. And this benefits an Indian student in a way that you can be a practitioner in India skipping MCI screening test. There are a lot many options for students to get enrolled at top MCI approved universities and get prepared for USMLE exams through trainings.

MBBS abroad has become a better option than MBBS in India for students who do not get admissions in Gov. Colleges. MBBS in Canada is risky due to visa rejections and less demand for doctors. Also the cost of MBBS in Canada and Australia is very high. And that’s the reason why most of the students are suggesting European and other countries.

We represent more than 35 Medical universities from different countries. There are universities for MBBS with lower-higher fees range. It starts from 8 lakhs per year!! So MBBS admission abroad leading to PG in USA is not a difficult task anymore. Medical aspirants in Asian countries do not give much importance to PG and end up spending entire budget on MBBS. But it’s important to understand that in today’s world, MBBS alone does not hold sufficient value and the students need to plan for PG well ahead to achieve successful medical career with trainings for USMLE exams. This will prevent the students from wasting the important years of life re-attempting the exams and doing research for selecting the universities for PG.

The best country for MBBS course is specific to every budget and eligibility criteria of every student, though there are a wide number of medical courses in USA. Thus, the students studying there are encouraged to plan their PG medical education in USA or PG in Germany at the right stage of their career. The students usually take the Online USMLE –Step 1 coaching from the 3rd year of their MBBS and prepare for it intensively in the next 3 years and appear for the USMLE Step 1 exam at the end of their MBBS and proceed for their PG in USA!

How to decide the budget for MBBS Abroad + PG in USA?

We advise students who wish to study MBBS and their parents to divide their total budget into UG budget and PG budget and not to invest the entire budget in studying MBBS abroad alone. This will ensure the security of their medical career as the importance of PG is increasing on a day to day basis.

Hence, students looking for an affordable, low cost but high quality option for their MBBS study in abroad till PG, this option suit the best!

Eligibility to appear for USMLE:

A medical student officially enrolled in, or a graduate of a US or Canadian medical school program leading to the MD degree that is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME).A medical student officially enrolled in, or a graduate of a medical school outside the United States and Canada and eligible for examination by the ECFMG – Indian MBBS students after completion their 2nd year.

A medical student officially enrolled in, or a graduate of a US medical school leading to the DO degree that is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).

STEP-1. (Qualifying USMLE Step 1 & Step 2 CK)

On completion of MBBS from Abroad, the students from various top universities in Russia, Ukraine, China need to give another competitive exam namely USMLE-1 . The student quality filtration begins at this stage.

After qualifying for USMLE step 1 with a score of 230 marks and above, the students would spend the next few months in preparing for USMLE Step 2 CK. They would then appear for the exam. Clearing USMLE Step 2 CK is not as difficult as Step 1. It only requires the student to pass. It is very rare that any student would fail in USMLE step 2 CK.

STEP-2. (Arriving to USA and completing Step 2 CS)

On completion of USMLE 2 CK , the students have to pursue PG level program (Also called as Residency). The first part of USMLE Step 2 CK is a computer based exam. The student can appear from across the world. The last part Step 2 CS needs to be given from USA since it is a practical exam. Generally all the students from the top medical universities pass this exam without much problem since it is not a competitive exam. Step 2 is just a qualifying exam.


The doctor of Medicine would need to work in a hospital for 3 to 6 years (On average it is 4 years except for surgical – MS degree). The number of years depend on the specialisation chosen. Finally the students give licensing exam namely STEP – 3 (Licensure exam) to become eligible to work as a doctor or a medical practitioner in USA. This completes the program of MBBS in Abroad along with the PG level program in USA. On completion of this the Indian students can work in India as well as in USA.
