Reforming Landscape of Overseas Medical Education For Aspiring Doctors in India
October 21: With every one in ten students aspiring to be a doctor in India, medicine has become one of the most preferred and sought-after courses willingly opted for by lakhs of Indian students with a strong dedication to serving humanity. This year, more than 18 lakhs students appeared for the NEET exam to kickstart their medical careers, but only about 56% of the students qualified for it.
With just under one lakh MBBS seats available in India, pursuing a course in MBBS in India is a distant dream for a large majority of students. The competition is high, seats in Government medical colleges where the fees are nominal are limited, and many, even if they have merit, find it impossible to afford the fees for private medical colleges. These less fortunate students who are unable to acquire a seat in Indian medical colleges due to either limited seats or expensive fees search for opportunities abroad to pursue their dreams of becoming an MBBS-qualified doctor.
Every year, thousands of aspiring doctors from India move to other countries for their medical education as they fail to get any opportunity in their home country. After thoughtful deliberation and a strong motive of not give up on their dreams, they fly to unknown countries with big dreams in their eyes. Russia has always topped the list of countries to study MBBS abroad for Indian students with the strong presence of globally-recognized medical universities where quality medical education meets their budgeted funds. The country has always been home to thousands of Indian students before and is still growing to be a top destination for medical studies for medical aspirants from India. The state-of-the-art infrastructure, well-equipped laboratories, advanced classrooms, comfortable hostel facilities, highly qualified faculty, the latest tools and equipment for practicals, sports facilities, affordable fee structure, and collaboration with the best hospitals for clinical training of students makes MBBS in Russia a top choice for Indian students.

Prof. S. K Washim, Founder and Chairman of Rus Education, established Rus Education to make medical education happen for Indian students who have the aptitude, attitude, and passion for becoming a doctor. In a one-to-one conversation with him about his motive behind founding this organization, he said, “Medical profession is the most coveted and respected profession in India. The struggles of medical aspirants during MBBS admissions in India made me come up with the idea of establishing Rus Education with a view to facilitating their medical journey in Russia, one of the most preferred destinations for medical aspirants. The organization opens the gateway of overseas medical education for aspiring doctors in India and helps them pursue their dream careers in the beautiful country of Russia. Now, even if students have only passed NEET scores, they can still pursue MBBS courses in Russia and become good doctors.”

These Universities are also listed with and certified by global statutory bodies. We at Rus Education understand the value of the medical degree and, therefore, collaborate with those medical institutions that share the same passion for medical education and that provide all opportunities to build the necessary skills and competencies in the students that would be required by them to become future competent, confident and successful doctors.”
