Chinese Medical Education for Indian students is undergoing a reform. China MBBS Educational Institution (CMEI), Shihezi University – School of Medicine, Qingdao University and some of the Central Medical Universities have excelled in higher education and research in the country. The Medical Council of India has recognized 49 Chinese Medical Universities since last couple of years, which means Indian students can go back with the degree certificates and practice as doctors after MCI screening test.
Since last 10 years, the growth in medical education in China has been tremendous compared to any other countries’ education. China has established many medical colleges in the past few decades as it has in other fields of education and technology.
In medical education, the focus has been tapping the potential of medical research, rather than just producing more doctors to cater to healthcare services. Medical research has been predominantly the objective in majority of the medical colleges in China. Unlike in India, where only a handful of medical institutes are ‘referral centers’, in reality, they are loaded with clinical services.
The medical faculty at medical colleges performs three roles – of researchers, academicians and clinicians with focus of activity in the order of research, academics and clinical services. Medical graduate education has a lengthy curriculum, which is completely research-oriented and theoretical in nature and somewhat clinical. The quality of research in academic medicine and medical faculties is growing the number of Indian students in China.
The medical faculties are confident to carry out research, as they have been exposed to research activities during their training. This is reflected in the quality of thesis by their students and their publications. Medical students are therefore encouraged in the early stages of their careers to carry out research. There are recent trends in Medical Colleges in China, where medical courses are offered with various specializations in science.
A serious attempt is being made by China MBBS Educational Institution to attract medical students from India to study medicine in China. This program is likely to attract medical students for two reasons. One reason is the tremendous growth of medical research in China and the other is the whole degree course is economical and suitable for any middle-class family.
