Can homeopathy pursuing student eligible to give MCAT to get into a medical course(MD) in USA

EVELIN GEORGENA D Student Expert 10th Jul, 2019

Hello aspirant,

Homeopathy is not fully recognized in the United States officially. You won't work at a hospital or have the privileges of MD or DO physicians. In the United States, this will take 2-3 years, and to get in, you will have to take the MCAT or GRE as well as have a college degree before you start. Hope this will be helpful.

Good Luck!
