Students in India considering a medical career quickly become aware of the challenges in obtaining an MBBS in the country. Many of these students opt to seek an MBBS abroad, including in countries around the world.
One of the foreign countries students in India may consider is Kyrgyzstan. The country has 55 different universities and higher education facilities and institutes, with the new University of Central Asia opened in the country in 2016.
Travel, Living, and Student Life
One of the first challenges Indian students will encounter when choosing to complete an MBBS in Kyrgyzstan is the difference in culture. The official language is Kyrgyz, with Russian considered the co-official language.
Students choosing to complete an MBBS in Kyrgyzstan should also consider the cost of living abroad. The types of accommodations, support with student housing, and assistance in navigating the complexities of the education system are all issues that students and their families should consider.
Challenges After the MBBS in Kyrgyzstan
It is typical that medical programs in Kyrgyzstan, as well as across Russia, China, and other countries in the area, provide students the opportunity for observations in an ACGME hospital. However, they do not offer a true hands-on clinical rotation, which creates challenges in moving forward to a PG.
It is typical that medical programs in Kyrgyzstan, as well as across Russia, China, and other countries in the area, do not provide students the opportunity for clinical rotations in ACGME hospitals in USA. Some students do find observership in USA hospitals after completing their MBBS. Clinical rotations can only be done as part of a medical curriculum and not after completion of mbbs.
