Study medicine from europe to usa? help info!!!?

We Answered:

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but in the USA you have to have nearly all A's (B+ to A- average at worst) to be able to get into medical school. Over half of all applicants to US medical schools are not accepted. Some medical schools will not accept international applicants.

In the USA, you have to take biology, chemistry, and physics at the college level before starting medical school. If the grades you describe are from college, you will have a difficult, if not impossible, time getting in to a US medical school. If you have not started college yet and these are high school grades, there's some hope, as long as you can do MUCH better in college.

IMHO, it is best to study medicine where you intend to practice. You will learn the local protocols and learn what you need to learn to pass that country's licensing exams.

However, if you want to try to get into a medical school in the USA, here's what you need to do. First, get your grades up as much as possible for your undergraduate degree. If the grades you describe are college grades, talk to an EducationUSA adviser in your country (see first link) about the possibility of coming to the USA for graduate school in a postbaccalaureate premedical program (see second link) for the purpose of increasing your GPA (academic record enhancing) and proving that you can handle medical school coursework. If they are for high school grades, ask about coming to the USA for pre-medical studies.

It is also possible to study medicine in some Caribbean countries where the admission criteria are lower than in the USA. However, some of these programs are not very good and graduates have a hard time getting into residencies or passing their country's licensing exam.

Bernice Said:

How hard is it to study medicine in poland and other european countries? Any stories of studying in europe?

We Answered:

Scotland is in the UK. And the Caribbean Islands are not in Europe. I thought people who studied Medicine were supposed to be smart.

UK = England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Poland is pretty much Eastern Europe, if want to study in an English speaking place, it'll probably have to be the UK or Ireland.

Look on their websites, google and research. It's all there in front of you.

Katherine Said:

Study Medicine in Western Europe in English language?

We Answered:

Master courses in Life Sciences, Medicine and Health in...

Now you have 'some' choice. Note that most are in the UK itself, so that means about 500 options are left. You could specify your criteria to, for example, biomedicine or public health yourself on that website, in case the discipline I used for you is too broad.

Hope that helps!

Daisy Said:

I want to study medicine in europe.Do you know any unversity????(teaching English)?

We Answered:

If you wish to study medicine in English, you need to look at universities in the UK or Ireland as these are the English speaking countries in Europe.

Medicine is an extremely competitive subject, you will need very good A'levels or their equivalent in the right subjects. You can also take a graduate conversion course as long as you have done enough biology to be considered.

Isaac Said:

Study Medicine In Europe and come back to U.S?

We Answered:

Yes. There is a list of approved foreign medical schools from which you can get your medical degree. Once you graduate, you will need to take the USMLE (US Medical License Examination) exams, which will allow you to practice medicine in the USA. Here is the official USMLE Website for more information:
