I wish to become a Neurosurgeon, but first I wish to practice in the United States or Singapore for half of my career and to spend last half of my career in India. Whether my wish is a good one? Is it possible? Is my decision is correct? Kindly commend on my wish?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 7th Apr, 2020

Raja, we have been discussing your career and aspirations for a while now and we appreciate that you want to take Career360's opinion on the matter of your career. So by now, you are aware of the fact what it takes to become a neurosurgeon and what it is to clear USMLE, practise as a resident in the US. We also have discussed the life style and the salary part. Now regarding the first half and later half of the career, we only wish we could predict our timeline on this planet. We do not which might be the first half or which might be the later part. But no wish is bad. If you want to achieve something, you should lest you regret for the rest of your lofe. Now to practise in the US, you may have to appear for USMLE, clear the step 1 and then practise as a resident before you can get the license to practise as a full time neurosurgeon. That is a long process that might take good 4-5 years. You study MBBS in India for 50 months and then complete the 1 year rotational internship and it takes you as many as 5 years. And appearing for USMLE and then working as a resident take another 4 years and so 10 years of your life are spent getting a valid license to practise in the US. And then lets say after 5 years you want to move to Singapore, that takes a whole different processing because you need to appear for their license exam. And you work in Singapore for lets say another 5 years and you come back to India. 15 years of your life are spent studying and getting licenses. But the beauty is within 15 years you can actually get license to practise in 3 countries. So you need to take a call. Or how about you finish MBBS in India, move to Singapore to study your MD/MS and plan on moving to the US? That way the transition is going to be smoother.


I wish to become a Neurosurgeon, I predict that I have a career period of 30 years. I wish to practice half career in the countries of the US, Singapore, the UK, Canada, New Zealand, or Australia and I wish to practice last half of my career in India. Is my wish possible? Is my wish a good one?

As long as you have an active medical license in your country that being india yes you can practice medicine anywhere in the world provided that you have some references who can recommend you to the place you want to work at and a good background check. That is the most important thing to consider. And yes your wish can come true if you work hard for it. All the best

Animesh Vats Student Expert 19th Mar, 2020


Well if there is a opening then you can apply but first you will have to get approved by the country's medical board for practicing surgery and then you can apply for a job in a hospital if availability is there. If you got one then you can learn and practice.

I hope my answer helps.

What is the Working time of Neurosurgeons in Singapore and Hong Kong?

Ina 17th Feb, 2020

Hello Raja,

As Neurosurgeons are also doctors, so there is no any specific scheduled time for a doctor. Yes, there is maximum 8 hour schedule timing for every profession and even it applies for doctors. But being doctor is not just a profession but also an responsibility of service of saving life, So whenever duty calls, they need to attend the patient immediately.

Hope you get my point.

Thank you. GOOD LUCK!!
