It isn't clear that there is a direct comparison.  In Europe, a student can get a bachelors degree in medicine.  In the US, a student must have a bachelor's degree, usually in a scientific field, just to apply for medical school.  The US medical schools take only the top qualified candidates of those who already hold a bachelor's degree.

Where is that comparison taken into account?

We should compare European countries with other European countries, and compare the US to other countries which also require bachelors degrees for medical school admissions.
