Medical tourism to India


It is interesting to know that India produces tens of thousands of doctors and surgeons who are serving in countries even other than India. There is a huge demand of Indian doctors and surgeons all over the world because of their reputation and skills. As per the last survey records available, 35000 surgeons are working in United States alone (this means one in every six doctor in US is an Indian). This makes India not only the home to best surgeons in the world, but the country that gives best doctors and surgeon to the world.

One would obviously like to look behind the reason for this. The main reason attributed by experts is the rigorous selection process for entering the medical schools in India, extensive training for five and a half years to become a doctor, a rigorous entrance examination again to become a surgeon and then again a qualifying exam to choose a particular specialization. Besides, since public healthcare system in India is free and attracts a lot and lot of patients, an Indian doctor is made to see and treat much larger number of patients than anywhere else in the world- also thanks to world’s second highest Indian population!
