So will you please suggest me what can i do as a BAMS person? I am feeling like that i am wasting my time doing MPH. what shall i do for job?
Please someone guide me.
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
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 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!
