So I don't think this topic has been discussed yet bc its fairly new, but has anyone heard about the new college in Karachi made just for foreign students? It's called DOW International College, and the people at DOW Medical want all the kids from abroad to go there bc it costs $10,000 which would help their funding for the other DUHS schools. My question is does their degree count? Meaning is it recognized bc since they made this new college they are making it harder for students from the US or wherever to get into the DOW Medical which is where I wanna go. The first batch of kids have already started this June and the the second batch starts in Nov. Anyone here from the first batch? Please respond, this is soo confusing.

Salaam Guys
i am currently attending the new DOW International.. i am in the 1st batch.. currently we have 20 something students... The building of the campus is tight.. If you have a place to live and you are dedicated to studying medicine for 5 years then you should apply here... the admission process is pretty simple since this is DIMC's first year.. the fees is 10,000 american dollars for both locals and foreigners..they also have temporary hostels which arent very safe.

Hi,
I had a question. I have gotten admission to DOW International Medical College.
Last year, when I had my IBCC equivalence made, they reduced 20 % of of my high school grades and thus I was no longer eligible to apply to a medical school in Pakistan.
If I attend DOW international, won't I have problems later on when trying to obtain my PMDC certificate?

Yes you will. This is a shady area. You need at least 660 in order to later on be certified by the PMDC and if you have been granted admission without having that score I would attempt to somehow have IBCC re-evaluate your transcripts and let them know that you've already been admitted. That might help.

From what I have read and heard Dow International Medical College (DIMC) and Dow Medical College (DMC) are the same it's just that DIMC is an addition to DMC; just another building and campus for International students.

what are the requirements for dow international? i havent heard much about this, but it seems like a good school. how would you apply to dow international? do we have to send our applications straight to dow international (individually, like we would for AKU and Shifa) or do you send it through the hec, since dow is a government school?

Is there anyone out there who is actually attending DIMC? from what i've read, badshah said that he was attending that school and is in the first batch of students there. since DIMC is a newer addition to DMC, there isnt much information available on the web about it. i'm really interested in that particular college since its mainly for foreigners, but i dont know much about it and dont know where to start. can someone answer these questions? appreciate it

i was on the DUHS website that was provided above and decided to research DMC in addition to DIMC. Theres a link under the DMC category labeled 'admission form' which i've tried clicking on many times, but my computer cant seem to access it. i was able to reach the application for DIMC, but not DMC. can someone give it a try?

how is the competition amongst foreigners when applying to both DIMC and DMC? and what is considered a good SAT score out of 2400?

A very Important ISSUE guys to clarify before the admission!

DOW INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL COLLEGE

Are they approved by the California medical board.

I know DOW is but I don't see Dow IMC on it.

It kinda reminds me of Poznan University in Poland their English 4 or 6 year program is NOT approved by California medical board, but their native language medical programs are approved by California medical board.

This is from California medical board website Warning: Some recognized medical schools that teach in their native language are opening English language medical school programs. The English language programs are not recognized unless specifically stated, e.g., "University of Pecs Faculty Medicine" and "Pecs University Medical School English Program (6-year English Program)." The English language programs must apply for recognition and receive approval from the Medical Board of California for the education received from the English language program to be eligible to qualify an applicant for licensure requirements in California.

I wish some one can shed some light on this issue.

Thanks.
