    No,you can not do that.You would have to take all entrance exams and start afresh. So,in my opinion,bear this and complete your studies there(Unless you can do it from the start again in Pakistan).I will suggest be patient there,do what you can and leave rest to HIM,Prepare yourself for higher studies(FSPS/FRCS) and to get job in Pakistan.Things won't be easy in Pakistan for you.

    Hi,

    Welcome to Medstudentz. And please don't worry, 'China' isn't that bad, an MBBS degree from a WHO recognized university holds equal value world-wide. Since you're half-way through, I would suggest completing your degree as only two years are left. As for your question, I'll have to search more on that and then get back to you because the doesn't help that much.

    Ok first of all thank you very much for your help..now coming back to my question. Actually the thing is I just want to do my internship in Pakistan and i have been asking around from a lot of people and the general idea is that doing internship from Pakistan while i have studied from China is a dream that may never come true . Do you know someone who is doing internship in Pakistan after coming from China?
    Best regards

    You are most welcome.
    Yes,you can do internship (but without any pay) in Pakistan.After coming to Pakistan you would have to give a PMDC exam after that you are eligible for further things(i.e intership,Job etc).But make yourself strong for this because in Pakistan you would have to face lot of difficulties for being ''China Da Doctor'' (You will hear this a lot in start).
    I know all about this because a cousin of mine did MBBs from china and when I could not get through MCAT.I had discussion with him all about it.He got house job in general hospital,Lahore( I guess this was the name or it was Jinnah Hospital,If I recall it correctly ).So,strengthen your ''brain'' for all of this

    You just have to clear PMDC test... It will be a difficult test ... When you clear the test you will get the job and everything you want... After that there will no difference between you and pakistan medical doctor... But big Question is that how to clear the test... Prepare yourself to clear the test

    You're right, medical students abroad can't transfer to Pakistani medical schools.
    Weird how Pakistani nationals studying overseas can't do this either (really thought
    there was a way ). Just a question, I know its far-fetched, but how hard is FCPS
    or FRCS? When's the best time to take that?

    Everything useful has already been said by other members. And, I do know of a Pakistani student who completed
    MBBS from China in 2012 (Zhejiang Medical Univeristy) and took an internship in Saudi German Hospital, Khamis
    Mushayt, Saudi Arabia. He's working as a chief resident in a govt. hospital (last I heard). As already said, passing
    the NEB is a must as per (p16).

    Well,Ist of all these days MBBS has no great value without any further specialization. The best time to do FCPS/FRCS would be right after your house job(unless you get married soon then wait a year or two) because you had the habit of studying for 5 yeats and more 3-4 years should be, ok.A friend of my father's cleared FCPS after 15 years of his marriage :-P .
    But remember doing FCPS/FRCS is the toughest part,it can make people go mad "temporarily " ;-)

    P.S: There are so many doctors in my family so,I have little bit of info on these topics :-3

    Yeah right term is house job.Incidently,my aunt was present at that moment so I asked her few questions too.She said that the term internship is also rarely used for house job because there is just difference of the fields. :-)

    Specialization is a must nowadays. Hmm, right, but completing my education is my first priority.
    Marriage can wait, and (imo) the added miscellaneous responsibilities would make studying next
    to impossible. Oh boy, at least they passed. Haha. Like MBBS alone isn't enough!

    Wow, Masha Allah, that's fabulous.
    Well in my family, four are medical students and a close relative's a doctor.

    So, what's it like studying there? The professors? Teaching facilities? Lab equipment and all?

    One should have the strong resolve to study.Its not impossible.My Chachoo ji is still studying after having two kids.
    I just stated the chances of specialization ,of course being a student our first priority is always education.

    You're absolutely right. All the best to him. Waiyyakum And, maybe it came out wrong, what I meant is that
    it would be better to complete our degrees, pass the required exams and specialize before moving on in life.
    That's all.
