but the thing is that applying as a foreinger you lose lots of money...i mean $10,000 per year thats equal to going to school here then...
It's still a lot
cheaper than going to med. school in the U.S. or Canada.
i heard aboout PTAP program...how do you apply to that what are your chances of getting into to that...if so is it possible to apply for it in private colleges...and Thanks for the great information guys its helping me out a lot!!
The Pakistan Technical Assistance Program is only for government medical colleges in Pakistan
. You apply under PTAP through the Economic Affairs Division. You can visit their website here
. Around spring to summer of every year, they post an application on their website for you to download and fill out. All the required documents you need will also be described for you on the application, so just follow the instructions and make sure you do everything
it asks of you. You don't want to give the people over at the EAD ANY reason to return your application, because a lot of times they'll bug you by saying "You forgot this document, we won't take your application."
Generally speaking, most people (if they are elligible) who apply to Pakistan government medical colleges under the Self-Finance Scheme also apply under the Technical Assistance Program because you might as well fill out the extra application and attach more photocopies of the same documents to see if you can get in and
pay less. Therefore, competition is generally higher under PTAP. What ends up happening is that the "highest scorers" (those with the highest IBCC marks) get offered seats under PTAP. Each medical college, however, has only one seat under PTAP (exception: FJMC). So someone who gets a seat at Nishtar under PTAP might get a seat at KEMC or AIMC under the self-finance scheme, and so he/she must choose between paying less and going to Nishtar or paying more and going to KEMC or AIMC. Whatever might be the case, after the individual makes up his mind, the lists for both the SFS (self-finance scheme) and PTAP are revised so that after the individual chooses, his name only comes up on one list, and on the other list, one more person is offered admission into one of the government schools.
It sounds a bit confusing when you read it, but it might be helpful to look at the lists of those who got selected this year under both PTAP and the SFS to sort it out. The PTAP lists (there are two lists, one original and one revised after people chose to go to certain colleges over others) can be found on the Economic Affairs Division
website. The SFS list can be found here
