    depends on your goals. if you want to be in any health/medical related field and your main objective is to land a job in the US, then definitely go for an american university - but there's a HUGE difference between a physician assistant and a physician proper (in terms of education and pay). if your main goal is to be a practicing medical doctor, then both Aga Khan and Dow are excellent choices within Pakistan.

    Due to visa restrictions it's quite hard for Pakistani medical graduates, even those with high scores, to secure a job in the US today (back in the 90s so many doctors from here got jobs in the US), but I know many recent Aga Khan graduates who were able to secure residences in the US.
