Texila American University (TAU) has proclaimed enthralling scholarships for Indian students to fulfill their medical aspirations.
TAU offers a Medical Council of India (MCI) recognized medicine program in Guyana, South America. The university is offering scholarships of up to Rs. 10 lakh for every meritorious student.
"Since the Indian Union Health Ministry has disapproved 82 medical colleges, at least 10,000 MBBS seats have been blocked nationwide. In order to fill this glaring gap, TAU is offering an opportunity to aspiring students to fulfill their dreams of becoming doctors by helping them with attractive scholarship," said SP Saju Bhaskar, President, Texila American University.
There are only 65000 MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) seats in medical colleges in India and every year millions of students appear for medical entrance exam. Hence, most of the students aspiring to become doctors in India find it hard to get a medical seat. It is thence a preferable option for many Indian students to consider studying MBBS abroad.
The university admits students twice a year, i.e., March and September. Since for most Indian students academic results are declared in June, they prefer September session for admissions. For students who prefer to practice in the United States of America, TAU offers training for the U.S. medical licensing exam.
"Texila opens a wide variety of opportunities for the international students, many of our successful Indian students have gone back to India and they are registered with the MCI, student intending to go to the USA pursue USMLE (the United States Medical Licensing Examination) and continue to do their residency in the U.S., whereas some stay in the West Indies to practice medicine," said, Dr. Anand.
