Normally in the U.S the study of medicine would follow a bachelor’s degree. The medical schools are very competitive and so it is not easy to get in. less than half of the U.S citizens that apply for medical school get in and less than 3% of the international ones are admitted. In some recent years 155 foreign students got in from the total of 16,221 and many of these were persons who had already done there undergraduate degrees in the U.S. public medical institutions are largely funded by the taxes of the residents that reside in the states in which they are located and so the preference will be given to the citizens of the state before all other applicants regardless of there background. Some of these public schools will only consider applicants who are permanent residents of the state and no one else.
