    Manipal Medical Twinning Program 2012

    Advertisements



    Hi,
    I am a first year college student in USA and I am interested in pursuing Medicine. I heard about the Medical Twinning Program in Manipal...I am thinking about applying for Fall 2012. As far as I know, it is a 4 year program & then I take a Step 1 Test and do my Residency.
    Has anyone done this program? Any advice or opinions?
    Thank You!

    Check with your state licensing. May not be eligible to license in your state. Are there any people yet who have licensed trying this?

    I know of at least a dozen in Residency. Don't think any of them are eligible for full-licensure yet since the most advanced only have 18 months of GME.

    Apply to US MD/DO schools first. Going outside the US should be a backup plan.

    In case you are a California resident, the Manipal twinning program is not currently on the list of California approved medical schools.

    Don't do it. Apply to a 6 or 7 year **/MD program. Try to get into a US med school first. If you are looking at Carribean Medical schools, try the more established ones first. St. Georges is the most expensive, but they are the most reputable Carribean school.

    Don't be fooled into thinking that just because you are doing your basic sciences in Manipal that you are not a carribean medical student. You are and you have fewer states accepting your school vs. going to the AUA campus.

    they just recently changed the program... instead of doing four years in manipal and two years in the U.S, you would two years in manipal, two years in antigua, and then you take the USMLE step 1 and then do two years in the U.S, and then take USMLE step 2 and then based on that score u find a residency program.

    They changed the program because they can't operate a school with 2 campuses w/ 2 different accreditation levels. Think hard before you choose this program.

    Another thing to consider is that the school raised tuition from ~9500 to ~14000 in a matter of 2 years. Who is to say they won't continue to raise it. Look at all your options. Consider trying for a US medical school. Residencies after 2014 will be much tougher to obtain because of the influx of US med school graduates. FYI US has upped the number of medical school spots and even opened new schools hence making it even tougher for Carribean schools. US citizens who applied to the match as FMG had less than a 50% match rate this year. So after all the struggle to get through all the steps all the paperwork and headaches with your school, spending on average $200,000 1 in 2 students didn't have a job for the following year. Food for thought.

    Not trying to discourage, but encouraging you to look at the reality of your choice.
