Studying medicine is always a little expensive than other professional degrees. Yes, of course, medicine is an ELITE universal profession with globally applied knowledge and experiences. Doctors are respected and well-treated, anywhere at any given time. The expertise and understanding of the elderly Doctors who are old and out of practising are yet very much demanded and helpful. Doctors never retire from their service and practise. And thus, studying medicine is always considered prestigious and expensive
Comparing to the fee structure of the Indian medical admissions, studying medicine abroad would be much cheaper, including stay, food and travel for the entire span of the medical course. Because students joining MBBS in any medical college for management seats would have to spend around 1 crore for 6 years. Where-as, there are plenty of foreign universities offering MBBS/MD programs from 30 lakhs with an excellent standard of education and globally recognised degree. Indian students prioritise the medical colleges in the Philippines, Central America, UK, USA, Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Ukraine and other countries. Among which, the Philippines have always been topping the list as it satisfies various expectations of the Indian Student population. Significantly, the passing percentile of students graduating from the Philippines is continuously increasing every year. The medical graduates from Philippine medical colleges clear from FMGE, USMLE and other qualifying examinations in great numbers.
The Philippines is one of the best places to study medicine for the Indian students, in recent years. Even many students from the USA, UK, Korea, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Ukraine, Russia, Germany and many more are studying in the Philippine medical institutions. One of the key factors attracting international students in the Philippines is that the country follows US-based educational system and medium of instruction is English. And the country offers MBBS MD degree at affordable price. As it awards globally recognised degree, the scope of the medical graduates from the Philippines is widened all over the world for higher studies and practise as well.
Every country in the world has its own separate medical qualifying examinations to license the medical graduates to practise in a particular country. So, the medical students who graduated from the Philippine medical colleges have to clear such qualifying examinations if wanting to practise in other countries. But the Philippine medical graduates are found to be trained in all the qualifying tests conducted by many countries, on a high average comparing to the other countries' medical graduates.
The Philippines medical, educational system has majorly relied upon practical learning which enables the students to get hands-on experiential learning on medical treatment methods and working under different circumstances. So much of the clinical practise during their course period, the Philippine medical graduates are excelling in their internship, and surprisingly, they can cope up with senior Doctors in India, during their initial days of practise onwards. Almost 95% of the medical graduates from the Philippines cracks NMC's FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduate Examination) in India and USMLE in the US, hands-down as they get trained to deal with MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) during their degree program. Even medical graduates can practise in the Philippines once after their graduation and internship in the country.
The Philippines follows US-based education system, and so it offers MD (USA pattern – Doctor of Medicine) which is equivalent to MBBS n India (UK pattern – Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery).

In the US education system, the students opt for four years of MD programme once after they passed 10th grade and complete Bachelor of Science degree. Still, as India follows a UK based educational system, our students do 10th and 12th grades at the school level. Students in India can do MD upon the completion of MBBS degree in 6 years. But in the Philippines, the medical students' complete Bachelor of Science (BS) for 1.5 years and opt for four years of MD programme in the Philippines. That's how The MD programme in the Philippines takes 5.5 years of course span
