Will I pass FMGE- Screening test? The pass percentage in FMGE is very low? I have no other options? No one to guide me? I will never be at par to an India MBBS student!
These are few of many questions a foreign medical student has. This blog addresses some of these questions with a hope that it would help you in your future.
FMG is an abbreviation for a Foreign Medical Graduate, a student possessing a primary medical qualification awarded by any medical institution outside India. Whereas a FMGE – Screening test is abbreviated for foreign medical graduate examination- screening test, which a FMG has to pass for obtaining a provisional or permanent registration with Medical Council of India or any State Medical Council.
The 5 – 6 years that students stay away from their family and country to pursue the dream of becoming a medical graduate is incomplete until they qualify the FMGE- Screening test. The FMGE enables them to practice in India, after a year of internship.
