Does it make Sense to Study Medicine Abroad
The primary reason why many students look to go abroad to study medicine is that they fail to secure a seat in a heavily quota-based system in India and with the introduction of NEET -PG situation worsened. This truly de-motivates talented and skilled students, who deserve better and unless merit-based rankings and ratings supersede the caste-based quota system of allotment; the 'brain drain' will continue!.
Huge fees of Private Medical Colleges in India, also restricts the talented and passionate minds from taking the seats in India. The professionalism in terms of teaching, state-of-the-art learning facilities and opportunities for research are the other factors that contribute to students going abroad to study medicine PG.
