In the context of India's emergence as a dynamic trillion-dollar economy, the stage is set not only for global leaders to invest in the country's promising future but also for foreign startups to choose India for global expansion. A recent example of this is the entry of a German startup, Futuredoctor, rebranded as FutureMBBS in India, with a mission to enhance the prospects of aspiring doctors in the country. In Germany, the startup's tireless work in the healthcare sector caught the attention of the federal ministry of health, the German President, and led to collaborations on various healthcare projects that further solidified their commitment to transforming the medical education landscape.

India's growing population has led to an increasing demand for medical professionals. However, it's evident that there's currently a shortage of doctors, which could have long-term implications for the healthcare system. India boasts a diverse and talented pool of students aspiring to pursue a medical career. Unfortunately, many of these aspiring medical professionals encounter limited opportunities. FutureMBBS has entered the Indian market to bridge this gap. As a result, it aims to channel the potential of these aspiring students and help address the shortage of doctors in the country, ultimately contributing to the improvement of the healthcare system.

MUDr. Andreas Zehetner, the Co-founder of FutureMBBS, states, "Having accumulated invaluable experience and expertise in Europe's medical education landscape, our goal is to share this knowledge with the talented youth of India. Our primary objective is to provide prospective medical students with the guidance they need to make informed choices regarding their medical education. This guidance is especially crucial given the challenges within the Indian MBBS education landscape, which has seen the prevalence of misinformation and fraudulent practices. Our aim is to restore trust and confidence in the system, ensuring that students are empowered to make the right decisions, whether they choose to continue their educational journey with us in Europe or explore other options."

Another challenge for Indian medical students is the complex and competitive path to securing a postgraduate slot in the country, even after successfully completing their MBBS education in India. FutureMBBS offers students the opportunity to pursue their undergraduate degrees in 16 universities spread across 8 European countries and subsequently pursue their postgraduate education at esteemed partner hospitals. Upon completing their postgraduate studies in Europe, students can specialise in fields such as Internal Medicine, Surgery, Radiology, and more, typically spanning 5-6 years. What sets this apart from the Indian system is that students start working as doctors in their chosen fields during this phase and earn a doctor's salary (approximately 50,000-80,000 EUR per year), eliminating the need for additional payments for postgraduate education. FutureMBBS handles all aspects of this process. This unique approach also equips medical students with world-class education and enables them to return to India as highly skilled medical professionals, specialising in their chosen fields, and ready to make a meaningful contribution to the Indian healthcare sector.

FutureMBBS understands the aspirations and priorities of Indian families. Quality education and an enhanced quality of life for their children are of utmost importance. Parents aim to provide their children with security and access to top-notch education, which is why the startup has tailored its services to cater specifically to these values. MUDr. Amandeep Grewal, co-founder of FutureMBBS, says, "Our dedicated teams are present at each university in our program, ensuring that students embark on a secure and well-supported educational journey. This approach provides parents with reassurance, knowing that their children are well cared for and that they can maintain a direct line of communication to stay updated on their child's progress."
