I am BAMS from India (1999) doing BS in US to try to enter in MD program

I have posted earlier user name Abhuda. I am attending a community college in Georgia- BS Premed major. So far I completed 54 credits ( I took 18 credits/semester) and got all "A" grades except English 1101 and 1102 where I got "B". My GPA is 3.90. I am now doing Anatomy and Phsiology classes in summer - fast track (8 credits, 3+1 each). I finished Calculus I and II as well. I will transfer to UGA in JAn 2010 and complete Org Chem , Physics, Endocrionology, Biochem and Genetics. I want to major in Microbiology. I hope I can finish BS by 2011 end, 120 credits- including summer sessions.

I shall work on MCAT after I complete Org Chem and Physics at UGA.

I want to give a shot for MD program in US and if could not get- will go to Carriabean St Georges/Saba Med School.

By the way I have 2 kids- elder will be 6th grader and younger 1st grader in August 2010.

It is a wonderful experience to attend classes in US in college. The teaching is extraordinary as compared to India. There are very good text books. My teachers are highly impressed by my motivation and grade performance.

Hope it may motivate others.

If you are a BAMS student in US, Please Read!

I am a BAMS graduate, and I wanted to share my story with all. Even though this is an old thread, I wanted to add information as this is the first result of a Google search for "BAMS in US"! Hopefully this will help someone...

I got married and came to the US in 2008. I was quite naive initially and believed my degree will be worth something here. I wasted a year trying to get into a masters program and PA school. The sad news is that BAMS is a definite dead-end in the US - It is *not* recognized as a bachelors program. After lots of deliberation, I decided that the best way forward is to drop it.

Please don't waste your time, money and effort sending your transcripts to WES (World education services) for evaluation - Please trust me, I have been through it all. They are just a money making outfit. They use generic verbiage from a template in their transcripts, and in the end, universities *do not* accept it.

It has happened to me with 3 different universities... Not a SINGLE credit was transferred. The problem is that WES will not say anything about accreditation in the transcripts. Universities here only honor accredited degrees. I am pretty sure WES is well aware of this.. but they make money from innocent international students.

After a lot of analysis, I finally narrowed my focus to Nursing - It is well aligned with health science, does not take very long, and is in demand in the US.

I enrolled in a community college, ran through all the prerequisites pretty quickly - all told, I finished 36 credits in 3 semesters. I got admitted to ASN (Associate of science in Nursing) in Fall 2009 .. and graduated in Spring 2011 (5 semesters).. Not bad at all.. I am now comfortably employed and feel like a contributing member of society. The effort was totally worth it! I hope do my BSN and finally get into PA school in the near future.

To all my other BAMS friends, I would only say that the sooner you decide to make a fresh start, the better it will be for you in the US. Good Luck!

I completely agree to what you've written above.Here are my questions/concerns:
I want to go the IT route.I tried my luck for 4 years in it and I enjoyed it.Now I need to decide what courses should I do so that I can train well and find a decent job in the IT field.I want to do a Masters in IT(I know might sound stupid because obviously I have a Bachelors in Ayurveda and not IT).Can you advise /or anybody else going this route if we are eligible to do it and what are the prerequisites.I have a three yr old so I am more interested in Colleges that offer Online Courses too.Life's given us a second chance and this time I intend to do it right..atleast course wise;)pun intended:).
Appreciate all the advise that I can get to start my career options here.
Thanks in advance!

Please see my previous post above from 2010

Journey from BAMS India (1999) to Medical School (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine "D.O'") Admission in USA (2015)

Now in April 2015: My story has happy ending.

It was a long way but I was determined to achieve my dream.

I got accepted to study Medicine in United States. The program is Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). This program is very similar to MD in USA.
DO is fully licensed in US in all 50 states to practice allopathic medicine in addition to holistic and OMT.
To know more about MD vs DO please google , " MD vs DO AAMC"


Please look for MD vs DO pdf AAMC PDF and open it


AAMC conducts MCAT and facilitates MD admission.
AACOMAS facilitates DO applications for admission.

I will be happy to help others as I have succeeded to fulfill my dream to enter in medical school in US.
In my interview in DO school I learnt from the committee that there is one BAMS who has done done MD in US.
