Although I hold an Indian citezenship, I've lived outside of India for almost my whole life. I'm starting 12th grade in August and was planning to go the US to study medicine. However after some research I found out that its very hard for international applicants to apply to med schools in the US which in most cases is only possible if you hold permanent residency (doing undergraduation is perfectly fine). Even if you have that, exceptional results and sometimes proof that you can fund your whole med school education is required.
Has anyone else wanting to become a doctor in the US considered this? Has it put your career path in the US on hold or are you planning to get a permanent residency and get over this problem?
