Is it cheaper to go to DIMC(Dow International Medical College) in karachi pakistan or to do three years undergrad (Ap credits take out 1 year of undergrad) and 2 years of PA school in the United States? Please advise. Im not sure if i want to be a doctor or a physicians assistant, which ever is cheaper i will do. 5 years med schooling at a medical college in Pakistan or 3 years undergrad ucf and 2 years PA school someplace nearby?

    I'm betting it's cheaper to go to medical school in Pakistan. How much is it?

    In China, your entire medical education could be completed in Rs 15-25 lakh, less than half what it would cost to even buy a seat in a private medical college, excluding the additional expense of tuition fees, food and board costs. China is amongst the cheapest destinations for a medical degree and has a large number of seats.
