MBBS degree in Taylors university Malaysia

I a high school senior that is looking to study medicine in Malaysia, Taylors university in particular. I am an international student and I'm not sure if it is the right option, but I've heard that its a top choice for internationals. Is the medical degree recognized in the US? Are the faculties good, are they conducted fully in English? Overall recommended? Thanks.

There are many private medical schools in Malaysia and teaching is in English. Teaching and quality of facilities can vary. If you are international student you need to make sure your qualification from Malaysia is recognised in the country you plan to work after graduating.

The more established ones (and offer international recognition) are Monash University Malaysia, RUMC (Ireland), IMU (Partners Programme) and NUMED (Newcastle). Monash is the best option as it is taught entirely in Malaysia (hence cheaper) and fully fungible with qualification Australia - degree is fully recognised in Australia and a good number of graduates work in Australia after graduating.

Practicing medicine as a doctor or physician in the US requires you to sit the USMLE which are a series of exams. No exemption is granted for medical degrees from most countries. So even if you are a UK, Australian or EU grad you will need to take the USMLE to gain a place in residency. Most foreign qualified doctors interested in working in the US do this after graduating. However, there is some controversy about international medical graduates (IMG) cheating at the moment - google "USMLE and Nepal".
