Hi, my name is Rijja, and I'm a current high school senior in the US. I'm planning on applying to medical school in Pakistan ( Aga Khan (my top choice), Shifa, Dow, and Fazaia to be specific) this upcoming application cycle 2022-23. There's almost no information available for foreign students, specifically those from the US and Canada, who are applying to Pakistani MCs, so I wanted to make a post where other foreign applicants could share information as there's no other forum or post on here for the 2022-23 cycle for foreign students.

Also with the changes Collegeboard made in the past 2 years (removing the SAT II) and the PMC's response by removing the SAT and SAT II as entry test replacements, I think a discussion like this is definitely needed because we now have to study for entry tests that have a different curriculum than ours. In addition, I personally have so many questions and have done a lot of research in the past four years about Pakistani medical schools, the application process, changes that have occurred, and people's experiences, and would love to share/answer other people's questions. I have two other forum posts that i'll link that have links and general information i've gathered in the past 4 years that I think will be helpful for anyone applying from the US or Canada.


As for me personally, my top choice is Aga Khan in Karachi and I've done a lot of research and have a bunch of resources regarding them if anyone is also applying there. Additionally for reference I've done the Advanced Placement (AP) track in all the required IBCC courses for pre-med equivalence and in other subjects. There's not a lot of information available for us on this forum or on the internet as a whole, so I hope a discussion like this will help someone else who's applying and possibly anyone after us who ends up applying. Good Luck !!

Thank you for creating this discussion; I hope it will be useful for others students who want to apply to medical school in Pakistan. My daughter is interested in this, so I'm looking with her for more information, but unfortunately, it is pretty hard to find anything. She wants to study dermatology. She is currently undergoing an acne treatment at the clinic Louisville Cosmetic Dermatologists | Bella Pelle Dermatology & Laser, and she is even more interested in this profession. So, if you find more information, add it here.

There's actually a WhatsApp groupchat where several overseas students are planning to enroll in med schools in Pakistan. A bunch of news, info about the MDCAT, general questions, etc etc is talked about in there. I highly recommend joining it.
