Studying medicines is a dream for many children who have nurtured the dream to become a doctor since childhood and serve mankind but are often confused about where to pursue their MBBS. In recent years it has been noticed that a large number of medical students from India and other parts of the world prefer to study MBBS in the Himalayan country of Nepal. One of the main reasons to opt for Nepal is because the country offers an MBBS course at an affordable rate as compared to other countries. There are reputed institutes in Nepal that offer admission to students without any hassles. Apart from that, the country offers several other benefits to its students unlike other countries for studying MBBS. However, there are certain things to remember while doing MBBS in Nepal.
Carry the essential documents:
Remember to carry the essential documents like Identity proof, NEET scorecard, mark sheets of class 10th and 12th apart from the passport and other relevant academic documents. Apart from that, it’s wise to keep a few copies of passport size photographs as the incumbent may require at any point in time.
NEET scorecard is important:
In India complete admission process for any medical entrance examination is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) for the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET). Any candidate securing more marks has a better prospect of being selected. However, in Nepal, separate exams are conducted by respective medical colleges.
Ensure the college is affiliated with Kathmandu University:
One of the major concerns among students studying medicines or any technical courses is regarding their prospects since on average private institutes they enroll themselves are not registered or affiliated with universities. By the time a student explores the fact, it gets too late. Ensure that the medical college is affiliated to Kathmandu University. These affiliated colleges not only offer a safe career but also provides a lot of facilities that are helpful while studying MBBS in Nepal. All these affiliated medical colleges have accreditation from Nepal’s Medical Council.
Emphasis on local language helps to connect with masses:
The biggest advantage of studying Nepal as compared to any other country is people speak Hindi fluently but still, there are a certain a section of people who don’t know Hindi and being affiliated with medicines it is always advisable to have a working knowledge of local terminologies and basic words.
Resist from quackery:
This is a very serious issue that needs to address at all levels as many would-be doctors still in their medical colleges are either lured by agencies or vested interests to start practice. Say no to such offers as this amounts to a grave offense of quackery and the incumbent may land up in serious problem if found guilty. Not only the person would be deported to his or her country but such allegations would put an end to the career even before it starts.
Studying MBBS in Nepal has many advantages. Not only the incumbent gets the privilege of learning medicines from a highly qualified faculty but gets an opportunity to pursue their course from the Medical Council of India (MCI) institutes.
