The trend of pursuing medical studies abroad is gearing up at a steady pace and is gaining momentum every year. As a result of this, many students and parents are being presented with a variety of options in terms of medical universities abroad, putting many in a dilemma, as to which destination to choose.

There are several factors to consider while choosing the University Abroad for Medical Studies. Exposure in terms of clinical rotation will be a biggest challenge as most of the countries (China, Russia, Ukraine, Philippines) have less than 8% of English speaking population – interaction with the patients will be challenging task which plays a critical role in exposure while they study. Another critical factor is the Local Medical Council Recognition of the University!


Texila American University is listed in Medical Council of India (MCI) and Medical Council of Guyana (MCG).

How important are the local medical council registrations for a Medical University?

Students who pursue medical studies abroad must clear their screening test conducted by Medical Council of their respective country before they start practicing as a doctor.

The Local Medical Council ensures that doctors who have qualified abroad and wish to work in their home country, have obtained the appropriate qualifications from a recognized University and can practice in their home country.
