Nowadays it is important to have a PG Degree in medical field to build a career. MBBS is not enough to make a mark in the tough competition. An MD or MS degree ensures that your medical practice is successful, whether it is a private practice, or joining any other clinic or hospital.
But, like MBBS, there is high competition in getting admission in a good medical University in India, and private Universities charge enormous amount of fees. Even if the candidate is able to get a seat in a good medical college, in many cases he or she has to compromise on the specialisation of their choice. That is the reason why many Indian students who are not able to crack AIPGMEE/NEET-PG in multiple attempts, pursue Medical PG abroad. Countries like US and Germany have become destinations of choice for medical students of India to pursue higher studies.
Germany as a Destination
Germany is one of the best destinations for Indian students to pursue higher studies in the medical field, although the process is a little complex. But to get an admission in a German Medical University, there may be no entrance test. The tuition fee is also waived off for MBBS and MS courses in Germany. Medical Universities in Germany keep the curriculum of studies up to date with the latest developments in the medical field, so the students study a very modern material, which is useful in their practice.
Once the PG is completed, Germany allows the students to stay in Germany and practice medicine anywhere within the country. There are many opportunities of finding a good placement from the medical Universities in Germany. Not just this, but even during the studies, the student gets handsome allowance as an intern. The medical PG studies in Germany are unlike any other – the students carry out hands-on job activities under the practicing physicians and doctors in government and private hospitals.
The admission procedure is complicated if you are a doctor who has completed MBBS from India.
