Pakistan IBCC Equivalency Certificate

MintmanMintman Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
Hello,

I am an American who currently attends high school in the United States, and the prospect of attending medical school in Pakistan appealed to me quite a bit. The only medical school in Pakistan that I would ever think about attending would be Aga Khan Medical College, as the reputation of the school is extremely good as well as the quality of education. As I was looking in the program booklet, it says that I need an equivalency certificate from the IBCC. I looked at the requirements for the IBCC certificate, and some of those requirements just seem ridiculous, such as your Original High School Diploma, as well as 4 photocopies of each educational document.

The questions I have are: How was the actual process for getting the equivalency certificate for any American who attended or is going to attend medical school in Pakistan? Was it really as bad as the website makes it to look like? How fast did it take for the certificate to come?

And if any one went to or is currently going to Aga Khan, how would you say the experience is? How was the application process to Aga Khan?

Thanks

    I hope the prospect of practicing medicine in Pakistan appeals to you as well because going abroad for medical school is one of the best ways to ruin your chances of a career as a physician in the US.
