The MBBS degree does not exist in the US. Instead, universities here award a MD (Doctor of Medicine) through their medical schools. This takes 4 years. In order to enter medical school you need to have a bachelors degree , which in the US is a 4 year degree. But, having a bachelors does not guarantee you admission to medical school, you need a high grade point average and MCAT score (MCAT is a standardised test). In total, that’s 8 years of study.

in the USA

Every year, a huge number of students from the USA and international arena give MCAT (Medical College Admission Test), an entrance exam for MBBS in the USA to get the admission to top medical colleges in the USA.

There are more than 350+ medical universities in the USA. The exam is monitored and scores are released by AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges).

These are funded by the US government which costs you lesser for the bachelor level MD program. However, just like India, it is highly competitive to get through MCAT. All the local students give this exam to get admission to the top medical schools in the USA. Accordingly, getting an MCAT score to get into the state medical universities is also the aim of every American appearing for MCAT. You can give MCAT after completion of Pre-Medical course. This is an extremely difficult way and quite an expensive road map to pursue MBBS in the USA. You may download a Brochure for the MCAT exam in case you wish to take this route.
