Hey everyone,

I have a question about practicing medicine in Pakistan. I am a Pakistani citizen about to complete a Bachelor's degree from the United States. Since it's almost impossible for International students to get admission for med schools in US, I am seriously considering going to the Caribbean for my schooling. But if I do go to one of the main schools there, Ross, St. George's etc, what is the procedure if I want to return and practice in Pakistan? Will I run into any problems?

Also, are there any Pakistani citizens here who have gotten a bachelor's degree and are now considering what is the best path to take to become a doctor? Or others who have made this decision? Let me know if you're out there, I'd love to talk to you!

Thanks,

Adil

I dont think foreign educated doctors have any problem practicing in Pakistan, although its very rare, you would just have to get registered with the PMDC and you could give the Paki version of the usmle, forget wat its called, FCPS or something or FRCP

Hey Adil. What was your GPA and what's the required GPA for Caribbean med schools? Because I'm considering doing the same thing as you, doing an undergrad in the US or Canada and then going to the Caribbean.
