MBBS in Georgia
Georgia is now a rewarding destination for MBBS studies. There’s a beeline of international students now at the turnstiles. Any student, Indian or otherwise, would naturally be curious to know where Georgia is. To begin with, Georgia was a constituent union of the U.S.S.R. and continued to be so until it gained independence following the collapse of the Soviet Union. It is situated at the juncture of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, bordered by the Black Sea, with Russia to the north, Armenia and Turkey to the south and Azerbaijan to the east and south. The region where Georgia is situated is known as Caucasus. There’s a saying about Georgia after it gained independence: It has one foot in Asia and the other in Europe. But for all practical purposes and conveniences, including cultural and political factors, Georgia is increasingly seen as an East European country. There’s more to Georgia’s geo-political aspirations but let’s get back to the moot point: Why would Indian students do MBBS in Georgia?
Any Indian student, when planning to go overseas for MBBS studies in a non-English speaking country, first wants to know what would be the language that would be used as a medium for teaching. The good news for them is: the medium of teaching in Georgian medical schools is English.
Secondly, Georgia has a very liberal social system, which allows international students to bond with different races and communities while studying. It is among the top ten safest places in the world. But what really is the icing on the cake is that, armed with an MBBS degree from a Georgian medical school, an Indian student can land a physician’s job anywhere in the world.
The medical universities in Georgia, which are recognized by the WHO, UNESCO and India’s National Medical Commission (which has replaced NMC as the governing body of medicine in India), have world-class infrastructure for residential and non-residential studies. Besides, some of these universities allow you to apply for scholarship.
You may now wonder what’s the catch or the downside of the Georgian story. There’s none. Like in most countries, course duration is of five years with an additional one year of internship.
And in terms of building an international career in medicine, there just couldn’t be a better option that Georgia, for it is the gateway to Europe, and in turn, to the advanced western world.
Here are some of the medical universities that you can choose from:
The next question is: eligibility. No great shakes here!
