need help for BAMS medical graduate

    BAMS graduate from India can develop career in any field in the U.S. Here education system is flexible and accommodative, sky is the limit if time factor is not limit and you will get happy in the end if you could do what you want to do.

    I am BAMS from India now in 2nd year of DO program (Medical doctor) like MD. To enter in DO, I completed BS in Molecular Biology from US and took MCAT and did all other required medical shadowing, research, etc.

    You can do MD /DO Allopathic
    PhD
    MBA
    MHA
    MBA
    Engineering
    Public Health
    Open company

    The approach to be taken is
    1. Research (do thorough home work) into what you want to do-for example want to go to
    MD/DO program: google how to get in medical school, what test required, etc
    visit

    www.aamc.org
    www.aoa.org
    Visit medical school/DO school websites for requirement
    Contact admission officer/Dean sending your CV and request assistance to help decide to become a competent candidate by acquiring additional education and experience in US.

    Do not count much on what courses from BAMS can be transferred and what not-
    because MCAT exam score needed for MD/DO admission will find your knowledge
    Also most DO/MD schools ask for atleast 90 credits done in North America

    Postbacc programs are there but for those who have completed US BS /BA degree and as such are very competitive to get in. Some one trying that to get in at John Hopkins Postbacc, do not know if succeeded

    However you will need to put efforts and time. You will have to complete pre-requisites courses, etc and demonstrate motivation, commitment, and perseverance and most important involvement /immersion to demonstrate passion to what you want to do in, cultural assimilation, to achieve your long term career goal!

    Every persons circumstances (US visa status and type of visa, family, location, state, spouse job stability of spouse to remain in same state/region, age, english proficiency, cultural assimilation, job experience from India, additional edu from India other than BAMS, etc) in US are different (even for with BAMS from India) and there is no one size fit for all like India.

    This is how I did it, basically, entered DO program in US at age 36 with my son currently in high school and daughter in middle school .
    These are my sincere suggestions!

    Good luck

    Hi abhuda,
    I have done BAMS from India too, post which I did MBA in Healthcare (India).
    I am planning to pursue some Master's again here in US.
    when I reached out to WES for evaluation of the degrees, they said they don't evaluate BAMS degree at all.
    Could you suggest me where to go next?
    how to deal with this problem?

    Hello folks,

    My wife is in the same boat as you all, and we are looking forward to get her enrolled in to Masters/MBA in Healthcare Administration. She has completed her BAMS and MD in Ayurveda-Rognidan.

    May I know if anyone in this forum has got admitted into Masters/MBA in Healthcare Administration? If so, what is the path?

    I'm just putting this information from WES website which clearly mentions now that -
    "Study programs in Ayurveda, Unani, and Siddha indigenous medical systems are not offered by regionally-accredited, recognized institutions in North America. As a result, WES does not evaluate academic records for such study programs. If you possess additional academic study, we invite you to submit those documents according to the Required Documents for the appropriate type/level of education."

    Also, has anybody looked into the following organizations -
    1. NAMA
    2. BASTYR University

    I wanted to post links from WES, NAMA & BASTYR University but the forum doesn't allow me to post links unless I've 5 posts on this forum.

    hi ,
    I have a BAMS degree from India as well. I'm exploring opportunities in the areas of Ultrasound or Radiology.

    Can you please advice if the above areas are a feasible option to study in US? I'm currently in New Jersey and exploring opportunities in the tristate area.

    Please advise if there are any others areas of study which I can explore other than MBA or MPH.


    Thanks.

    Hi abhuda,
    I have done my BAMS from India. At present I'm in New Jersey. I tried to explore about studying ultrasonography. As many people said WES not evaluating BAMS. I tried GLS I.e., global language service through which I got my degree course by course evaluation done. They gave US equivalent degree as DOCTOR OF AYURVEDIC TRADITIONAL MEDICINE FROM REGIONALLY ACCREDITED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION IN THE US. GPA A-3.83. So please help me whether can I use this and apply for ultrasonography course here or any other medical course. Or can I do USG course from India and appear for ARDMS. Please waiting for your reply.

    Thank you,
    Sathyakarthik

    Folks,
    Abhuda here, currently in US DO program like MD, after BAMS from India and BS Molecular Biology from India. I have 1 semester left to enter clinicals rotations, have to take COMLEX I and optional USMLE I before that.

    Folks, do not get confused, all of BAMS graduates are smart- need to show smartness.

    Sathyakarthik : Contact the US school you want to to ultrasound/radiology. If possible take appointment via email and go and meet the admission dept with your documents/evaluations/visa/TOEFL/GRE scores etc.

    Before that, visit their website and look for what you need to get in program.
    I do not have answers for each of your situations, you need to do reading/research about it, the way I did.

    You will be all successful. Just research/do home work. Contact schools, talk via phone, send email with CV, visa status, ask the academic office questions.

    In 2007, I did my BAMS evaluation from WES., I think WES not doing BAMS evaluation now.

    Vasantha on BAMS forum trying that to get in at John Hopkins Postbacc to enter Medicine , do not know if succeeded, seems working towards premed requirements

    However you will need to put efforts and time. You will have to complete pre-requisites courses, etc and demonstrate motivation, commitment, and perseverance and most important involvement /immersion to demonstrate passion to what you want to do in, cultural assimilation, to achieve your long term career goal!

    This is how I did it, basically, entered DO program in US at age 36 with my son currently in high school and daughter in middle school . By the way want to share that my son got accepted at Duke University this year for college.
    These are my sincere suggestions!
