About Azerbaijan Medical University

It’s 2022, the year that saw a plethora of changes in the world. Just as people were adjusting to the adverse effects of the pandemic, another disaster occurred, and that was the Russia-Ukraine war.

The war didn’t only affect the participating countries but also impacted the entire world’s situation. One section of people the war had a major impact on were the students pursuing MBBS from foreign countries.

As we all know, MBBS in India has always been competitive. Students have found it very difficult to get MBBS admission even after scoring well in NEET in recent years.

This has given rise to a popular culture among medical students to pursue their MBBS from another country and then come back and practice here.

The idea has always served good, and even after the Russia-Ukraine war, the perception hasn’t changed much.

One country that has been popular among students to pursue their MBBS degrees is Azerbaijan. Situated at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, the country offers an endless number of opportunities to students who come to study there.

Pursuing MBBS from Azerbaijan

The recent times with Russia-Ukraine conflicts have sowed the seeds of doubts in many people’s minds. MBBS from foreign countries has been severely affected by that.

Even though the phenomenon of pursuing education from other countries does not stop, the question of safety and security renders students living in a dilemma of whether to pursue a good career or to avoid being part of conflict.

Well, to the readers reading this article, the first thing we need to clarify is that conflicts can arise anywhere. India has been in conflict with China and Pakistan for quite some time, but that doesn’t stop anyone from achieving their dreams.

It’s the same with Azerbaijan, and the plus point is that Azerbaijan as a whole is a completely safe country. Baku specifically is a beautiful place and offers complete security to people visiting and studying there.

Azerbaijan is also one of the most affordable countries globally. Food and transportation costs are very cheap, with a maximum of 4 AZN needed for a hearty meal at a small eatery and 0.30 AZN for a metro journey.

Coming onto MBBS in Azerbaijan- The Azerbaijan State Medical University, the sole Azerbaijan university responsible for training medical specialists, awards MD degrees equivalent to MBBS degrees in other countries.

The programs have a six-year duration, with students in the sixth year obliged to work in an entry-level position.

Azerbaijan Medical University is Internationally Accredited

The major benefit is that the clinical programs of Azerbaijan are “Internationally recognized” by both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Medical Council of India (MCI), along with other well-known international organizations. All of this makes Azerbaijan an ideal place to study.
