Q) What would be the advantage to applying to a Russian higher educational  Institute through GEC?
GEC has close ties with the Russian universities and the founder members of GEC have themselves completed the medical education in Russia.
GEC understands the Russian educational system very well and hence can provide practical assistance to the prospective students willing to pursue medical education in Russia.
GEC guides the students and their parents not only to get the admission but also while undergoing the medical education course in Russia.
GEC does not stop here, and guides the students (and parents also) about the higher specialization courses in India and abroad. GEC also guides the students to appear for the medical qualifying exams in India, USA, UK and other countries.
Q) Are the medical degrees from Russian Universities recognized?
As per the amendment to the Indian Medical Act, 1956, any Indian student intending to study medicine in any medical college anywhere in abroad for a graduate medical course has to obtain an eligibility certificate from the Medical Council of India, New Delhi before joining the medical college abroad. After the successful completion of the course, the student is expected to appear or a screening test conducted by the National Board of Examination (http://www.natboard.nic.in) as required by the Medical Council of India (http://www.mciindia.org) prior to the registration with the Medical Council of India. The academic requirement for the eligibility certificate as defined by the Medical Council of India for the general is an aggregate 50% marks in the Physics / Chemistry and Biology and 40% incase of the reserved category. More details could be obtained from the Medical Council of India either from their office in New Delhi or from their official website. GEC guides the students to appear for the medical qualifying exams in India, USA, UK and other countries.
Post Graduate courses from no where in the world are registered with the Medical Council of India or the Dental Council of India. This would mean that you would be unable to neither work as a specialist in a government hospital nor teach the specialization learnt. You would however, have your own private practice or work in a private hospital. Since you would be doing your specialization from a University, which is listed by the WHO in its "Directory of world medical schools", you would be eligible to appear for screening examinations to many screening examinations like PLAB etc.
Q) Does the student have to give any entrance examination for joining the university in Russia?
NO. Student does not have to appear for any entrance examination. The admissions are based on the 12th standard marks for the Graduate courses and as per the equivalency of the Indian graduate degree with the Russian degrees for the post graduate courses. All admissions are strictly on a first come first served basis.

The education in Russia is highly subsidized by the Government of the Russian Federation. Therefore there are no separate scholarships or grants available from individual universities.
