Education in USA is a dream for any student aspiring to study abroad. But it comes with a huge expense tied to it.

Studying Medicine in USA may costs valuable time and money. Average cost per year ranges from INR 25 – 50 Lakhs per year inclusive of food and living costs.

Overall cost of medical education may vary from INR 2.5 – 4 Crores for an International student


major source of funding / scholarship in studying at USA comes from Federal loans, which are limited to local citizen and PR holders. 

Still, International students are offered various scholarships, bursaries and financial assistances on basis of merit. For bright and dedicated international students, students need to strive hard to display their prowess in academics and curricular and co-curricular activities. 

However, medical students have excellent and rewarding career opportunities in USA, which is often remarked as "The land of Opportunities”. Opportunities include fully funded PG education with ample stipend during their Post Graduate education, a result of the country’s ever rising demand for medical professionals.

Application process to American medical universities starts with reporting a competitive MCAT score well ahead of the deadlines. Most universities in USA close application deadlines by January – March depending on the ranking and demand for the programs that usually start in September. 

Kindly contact US Medico Abroad team for further information, since the requirements of every university varies time to time

In the United States, the F visas are a type of non-immigrant student visa that allows foreigners to pursue education (academic studies and/or language training programs) in the United States. Prospective F-1 students must apply at the universities for admission and receive a form I-20 in order to apply for an F-1 visa. F-1 students must show that they are able to support themselves financially during their stay in the U.S., as their opportunities for legal employment are quite limited.
Except for on-campus employment of 20 hours a week or less, F-1 students are generally not permitted to work in the U.S. without prior authorization from Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). However, the USCIS may grant work authorization for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT). Students are permitted to work for a total of 12 months towards practical training (e.g. internship), which can be distributed between Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT). US Medico Abroad Team would support applicants in the complete visa process.
