Course Structure of the medical education in USA

Since a medical degree is considered a second degree in the USA, students are required to have first degree ie. Bachelor of Science (BS) in biology, chemistry, or any other related field to apply for Doctor of Medicine (MD) in the USA. This BS degree is also referred to as a pre-medical course. After completion of MD, students have to apply for a residency program based on their choice of specialization.

Pre-Medical Course

This is considered a foundation course and teaches students the basics of medical science. Domestic students of the USA start pursuing this course after 10th class and the duration for them is 4 years. However, since Indian students also apply for medical education in USA after 10+2, they have to study a BS degree only for 4 trimesters or 16 months. The same system is applicable for the medical education in Philippines.

If anyone is already having a BS degree in the medicine-related field or studied MBBS for 1 or 2 years in India, they might be exempted from enrolling in a pre-medical course in the USA. Although, this decision lies in the hands of the university to which that International Medical Student is applying.

Some of the subjects taught in pre-medical courses are: English, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Anatomy, Medical Terminology, and Sociology.

MD Program

After completion of the pre-medical course, the International Medical Student becomes eligible to enroll for an MD program which is equivalent to MBBS in India. The program is divided into two stages, each requires 2 years to complete.

Theoretical Stage: It focuses on imparting an advanced level of theoretical knowledge about medical science to Medical students. Some of the subjects that an International Medical Student studies in USA are Anatomy, Physiology, Histology, Medical Ethics, Biochemistry, Neuroanatomy, Pathology, Microbiology, and Clinical Science

Students have to appear for USMLE 1 (United States Medical Licensing Examination) to qualify for the second stage of this MD degree.

Practical Stage: It is also known as Clinical Rotation or Externship/Clerkship. The basics of operating in a hospital and treating patients are taught by doctors and professors. At the end of this stage, the International Medical Student must apply for USMLE 2.

Residency Program

USMLE 2 qualified students are eligible to apply for the residency program. Duration of this program ranges between 3 to 5 years depending upon the specialization chosen.

Students have to work in hospitals and become an expert in their respective fields.

USMLE 3, also known as Licensee Exam, is the final exam that you have to appear for. After passing this exam, you can practice as a doctor in the USA or in any other country that approves the US education system.
