While there are 542 medical colleges in India recognized by the Medical Council of India, this number is quite low if compared to the number of medical aspirants in the country. Also, there is a need for more professional Doctors in India to meet the needs of the Indian population. Other than Indian Medical Institutes, medical aspirants from India have been going to complete their MBBS, to Russia, the Philippines, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Bangladesh & China. Vietnam, thus becomes an affordable destination for their medical studies as the cost of living is comparatively inexpensive.
