Kyrgyzstan has one of the coldest winters in the world. The temperature may reach below 0°C and in summer it could reach up to 30°C. This irregularity in the temperature might cause discomfort to the students pursuing their MBBS in these countries. 


The climate differs from India to a greater extent which causes students to study a different disease pattern when compared with India.

Teaching Experience

Kyrgyzstan 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 Kyrgyzstan. So students need to work hard to prepare for their eligibility exam after completing MBBS.
