Most applicants try their best to get into the most reputable foreign medical school. However, the reputation of a medical school is no guarantee that it will best fit your aspirations. You need to find answers to some important questions to better evaluate the best foreign medical schools for Americans.

Does the school share your academic focus? Different medical programs encompass different areas some concentrate on primary care while others focus on specialty medicine or research. If your interest is in primary care, you should select a foreign medical school that provides enough patient contact in the first couple of years. In contrast, if you desire to be an academic or a researcher, you would be happy at a school that emphasizes the education of family practitioners.

How much pressure are students exposed to? You would find some medical schools where the atmosphere is collaborative and calm, and others where it is decisively competitive. Which of these schools would you prefer?

What about student life? Before making any decision, you must take into consideration the time you will be spending at the place, with the people; it would be four years or more. And you won't be spending the entire time with your books. So, speak to current students and find out how life is outside of the school.

These are only a few questions that you need to find the answers to in order to select a foreign medical school that best fits your requirements.
