The cost of medical education: Private and Abroad
Dated: 22nd June 2018
There are several reasons why private medical education is so expensive, one of the main reasons is the lack of government medical colleges. Every year, a mere 15,000 seats are available in various government institutes as against more than five lakh aspirant doctors. The fees in government colleges is much lower, making it tough to get a seat there. Private colleges with profit as the motive have been exploiting this.
Many students are forced to look for cheaper destinations abroad.
Countries such as China, Russia, Ukraine, Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Belarus and Nepal have become popular destinations for aspiring doctors as the cost can be less than half of what private institutes here charge.

A private medical college in Lucknow has set a record of sorts by fixing the fees for a five-year MBBS course at a whopping Rs 1.2 crore. While it is generally known that private medical education in India is expensive, with fees ranging from Rs 30-35 lakh to over Rs 50 lakh, the Lucknow college surpassed this average by more than two times. As news of this exorbitant fee structure spread, many took to social media to express their outrage. But the college is unlikely to be fazed by these voices of anger and concern
