The majority of students may have met the January 1 deadline for admission. What are you expected to do now? The best way to move forth is to concentrate on your upcoming Class 12 examinations.You may think that you fit the profile for admission but it is entirely possible that your dream college may not consider you.So keep your options open.IMPORTANT: Study for the Board examinations as a good result would guarantee admission. The following calendar may be useful in keeping track of your admissions process.
JanuaryCheck your e-mail regularly to ensure that you are not missing out any communication from the schools. Some schools interview the applicants and make sure you have not missed the invitation.Some colleges may require your grades from class 12 internal examination as part of your application folder. If you have done really well, make sure you send a copy to the school. However, if your performance does not reflect you in the best possible light, find out which schools want the report and only send it to them. If you have been admitted to a school in the Early Decision process, check with the school if you are required to pay a deposit to ensure your place. And remember to withdraw from other schools.
FebruaryContact your colleges and confirm that all necessary application materials have been received. If you have decided to apply for financial aid, make sure that you have filed the financial aid papers. FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) deadlines and other financial aid application due dates for your college may be different from the federal deadlines and you may be required to complete additional forms. If you are keen to take the AP (Advanced Placement) in May, register for the same as the deadline is March 1. Through AP’s college-level courses and exams, you can earn college credit thereby saving yourself time and money in the long-term.
MarchKeep your focus on excelling in the exams as some admissions offers could be contingent on your final grades. Admission results will start trickling in the last week of the month though some colleges may start sending feelers by the start of this month.
AprilMost admissions decisions and financial aid award letters arrive this month. Read everything you receive carefully, as some of it may require action on your part. Make a final decision, and mail the enrolment form and deposit cheque to the school you select before May 1 (the enrolment deadline for most schools). Notify each of the schools to which you were accepted that you will not be attending in writing so that your spot can be freed up for another student. On the waiting list? Contact the admissions office and let them know of your continued interest in the college and send them your Board result and other activities post the application.
MayTake the AP Exams and make sure that the grades are sent to your college. Start the preparation for applying for a student visa. Just because you have been admitted to a school is no reason to assume that you would be granted a visa by the consulate officer. US law treats all student visa applicants as potential immigrants and you have to prove it otherwise during the interview process. Now the visa is also done, you are all set. You will need to get some medical clearances before you leave. Get your paperwork in order. Send the final exam transcript to your college. Shop for items you will need in college. Sign up for the orientation. Bon voyage!

According to a study in 2018 of January, the average salary of neurosurgeon is approximately $600,000 which is about Rs.4,32,00,000 and a spine surgeon earns about $688,000 which is about Rs.4,95,36,000.
Hence, a spine surgeon earns more than a neurosurgeon!
However, spine surgery is considered under neurology department.
But on the whole, it depends upon your experience in the field!
After Completing PG of Medicine in India to become a Doctor at USA, the candidate has to practice in post graduation at USA too and then apply for work visa in USA once they get the residency confirmation to continue as a Doctor in USA.
Hope this information helps you.
Shachi, you are eligible for pursuing Master's based on your
qualification. You are a Chartered Accountant only after you successfully complete your CA Finals. Until then you will be a Candidate who is pursuing your CA. But based on your
qualification, you can study your PG.
Let us see how you become a doctor in the US after completing your MBBS from India. So, supposedly, you have competed MBBS in India. Now you have two options to complete residency in the US.
USMLE is United States Medical Licensing Examination. Step 3 assesses if you know the application of the medical knowledge without supervision. It is the final exam in the U.S. to obtain a license. Only after completing Step 3 will you be able to obtain the license.
Take the USMLE exams. Once you finish MBBS, try to do a month or two of elective training in one of the American universities in your intern year. Once you are there, reach out to people and try to find a research job in the department you are interested in for the next year. Once you are in research, try to publish a few good first authored papers, and as many co-authored papers as possible and attend conferences.
You will need high USMLE scores, US research experience, publications and conference presentations to get into a residency program. And above all, a very supportive and well connected mentor in the US.
Very few doctors take the second route. While studying Masters, they prepare for USMLE 3 and once they have completed USMLE Step 3, just like any other professionals, they apply for jobs in the hospitals for Residency.
Doctors are paid during Residency (minimum 3 years). After completing Residency, you have to take state board license to practice medicine in that particular state. Some of them get so tied up in their Masters programme that they are unable to focus on USMLE.
Hope this helps. All the best!
