AMA School of Medicine has a specialized program for international students who wish to take the combined Bachelor’s degree and Medicine degree programs. The BS Psychology pre-med program is a one-year program where the K-12 subjects of Indian students, such as Biology, Physics and Chemistry, are automatically credited. Upon completion of the pre-med program, the students enter the Medicine program provided they pass the National Medical Admission Test (NMAT) and comply with the requirements for eligibility from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
Majority of international students currently taking the special program are from India. In Medicine proper, there are also students from Nepal and Pakistan.
AMASOM is listed in the World Health Organization (WHO) which is recognized by the Medical Council of India (MCI). With this recognition by MCI, AMASOM’s Medicine program is considered equivalent to the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree similarly offered in the UK, Australia, India and other Commonwealth countries. After their MD graduation from AMASOM, Indian students will be given a license to practice in India similar to the MBBS doctors from India after completion of licensing formalities with the MCI.
