Disadvantages of Studying MBBS in Central America

  • Experienced Teaching
  • Curriculum

Quality of Education

Central America is a developing country in the Asian continent. The government infrastructures are under development in this country. Most of the medical colleges in these countries are considered new. 

Many colleges are present in the outskirts of the country and the clinical exposures are very low in this country. Many colleges use dummies instead of real cadavers to teach anatomy. This is really a lag when we consider gaining true knowledge.

Cheating Agents

Due to the high commission availability in these colleges most of the agents will not tell the true nature of the colleges and will try to brainwash you to join in these colleges. These agents will have tie up with these colleges and some even work based on a target basis. So if any agent tries to compel you to join  any MBBS college in Central America please be very careful.


Experienced Teaching

Central America is a developing country and most of the colleges will be underdeveloped and will have a poor infrastructure. Only very few colleges which have experience in MBBS education for over more than a decade could provide you with a quality education. Most of the students are not fluent in English. So proper research on the college and its infrastructure is very important.


The country has their own medical curriculum. Thus many students struggle to pass the FMGE exam after completing their studies in Central America. So students need to work hard to prepare for their eligibility exam after completing MBBS.

In Summary

There are many other factors which could spoil a student’s education when studying MBBS in Central America but these are some of the prime factors which could seriously damage the psychological factors of a student studying MBBS in Central America. So proper research must be done by the student before joining a university or approaching a consultancy. Many consultancies ignore to give you this information about the disadvantages so self research is the best to overcome these prime factors which may affect a students educational career.

The main aim of the article is to educate the student about the pros and cons of doing MBBS in Central America. Some universities might provide top quality education without any of the cons mentioned above. And some universities might look very fancy and convincing but the infrastructure and the facilities will be poor. So it is upto you to ask for explanations and proof to the education consultancy which is convincing you to take up a seat to do MBBS in Central America
