    It's odd they still don't have a public medical college opened in Azad Kashmir yet.

    abdullahm18,

    Thank you very much for putting this together! I've gone ahead and made it a sticky so it stays near the top of the forum for quick reference in the future.

    For those with questions about whether you can practice in the US after graduating from a medical college in Pakistan please look at the list of all US approved Pakistani Medical Colleges. Here is a link:

    If the college that you are interested in is NOT on that list of approved institutions then you will not be eligible to take the USMLE. Please contact the college for further information regarding their intentions to be approved by ECFMG & FAIMER.

    Just because a medical college is approved by PMDC does NOT mean that it is necessarily approved by the United States.

    Currently the PMDC's list has 65 approved medical colleges. The United States' list has only 48 approved medical colleges in Pakistan.
    Cheers,
    Rehan

    Please DO NOT private message me for help.

    Post all questions in the public forums only
    so that the answers will benefit others who
    may have the same question in the future.

    Interested in Pakistani Medical Schools?
