Medical programs are a whole different thing. Unlike other areas like business, computer science, fashion & design, you can not suggest any university for medical courses. Basically the location also has to be very effective. The reason I'm staying all this is pretty standard.

In medicine, you need certain things like certifications to practice in a country. Like if I obtain a medical degree from the UK, I can’t just come back to India and start practicing. You'll need to go through the board and acquire specific certificates to start working in a country. Same goes for all other countries.

The UK is undoubtedly the best country for medical courses and colleges. Plus it is the largest destination in this field. Compared to other locations, the problem mentioned above is most similar to the UK. Many Indian medical practitioners are connected to the UK and the degree obtained there is more recognized here. In my suggestions, these are the colleges you should aim for a medicine course -


  • University College London
  • King’s College London
  • University of Glasgow
  • University of Edinburgh
  • London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

UCL and King’s College are like one of the very best universities in the UK. They have a seperate medical department that offers courses in medicine. The other three are also very good. In case  you prefer the USA, the top ones  therefore medicine study are; New York, John Hopkins, University of Washington and California, San Francisco. You can make a decision based on your interests.

Personally, I would always go with the UK for medicine and healthcare programs. The healthcare industry theory is more prosperous and lucrative.

Getting admission into medicine is a pivotal step that requires meticulous planning and preparation. Understanding the specific requirements and crafting a competitive application is crucial, whether you are eyeing medical schools in the U.S., U.K., or elsewhere, 

Firstly, the prerequisites for medical school include a strong academic record, particularly in biology, chemistry, and physics. 

Most medical schools require a bachelor’s degree with a high GPA and a good score on entrance exams like the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) in the U.S. or the UCAT/BMAT in the U.K. These scores are vital as they reflect your aptitude for the rigorous medical curriculum.

Beyond academics, clinical experience is a significant component of your application. Volunteering in hospitals or clinics or shadowing doctors showcases your commitment to the medical field. 

Research experience, particularly in medical-related fields, can also bolster your application, as it demonstrates your ability to contribute to the field’s academic and practical advancements.

Furthermore, your application essays should reflect a deep understanding of the medical profession, a clear motivation for choosing medicine as a career, and your personal aspirations. Letters of recommendation are equally important and should ideally come from academicians or professionals in the medical field who can vouch for your suitability for a career in medicine.

Consider applying to multiple schools to increase your chances of acceptance. Additionally, some candidates may find it beneficial to apply to newer or less well-known medical schools where competition might be slightly less fierce, but the quality of education is still robust.
