10,000 foreign-educated doctors jobless after failing MCI test

Chennai: Close to 10,000 Indians across the country who have completed their undergraduate medical education abroad are unemployed or under-employed.

This is because these foreign-educated Indian doctors have not been able to clear the screening test mandated by the Medical Council of India (MCI).

Now, the graduates plan to approach Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Parliament demanding that the screening test be scrapped. [Source: ToI]

    Screening by MCI/NBE should be mandatory.Yes, for everybody whether graduated from an Indian institution/abroad.,afterall to maintain a quality in the profession that deals with the human lives.

    It will be sensible,to conduct FMGE screening after the internship,since most of the medicos(both Indian and foreign trained) gain some practical knowledge . Yes, there are medical colleges in India, which lack proper infrastructure too. Internship imparts some basic ,necessary skills to everyone. Even this is the practical exposure period to some medicos though.

    If MCI needs to improve the quality of Indian health care system, they would have atleast mandate some brief training under strict supervision of a senior doctor to check for basic necessary skills,whether competent as in India.

    If people talk about the quality of care,given by our doctors, what is the mortality rate in India so far in govt/pvt hospitals?

    How many medical hospitals/colleges are sufficiently equipped? Since India is still a developing country,it takes time to put things in place accordingly. When BHMS/BAMS/ RMP’s are working at different levels in this country, can’t an FMG provide a better care? No one is a professional by birth, but proper skill exposure and the experience definitely adds.

    Likewise,when an Indian med.graduate has to apply for a foreign country like US,UK,CAN,AUS,NZ procedure is no different fom other fmg’s.

    Lets help serve a better country.

    Dear friends,
    I totally agree with some of them .there are few medical colleges almost 50% colleges outside India in China and Russia and some of Caribbean medical colleges to name a few run private collages and lies with the students and once you are there there is nothing except they are selling degrees after 6 years where you just need to register in the college. You are given the degree you are so dumb that you don.t even know names of textbooks for the subjects.
    So Mci. Screening test is a must .i studied very hard for 1 year to read the whole textbooks and to understand the concepts from the books like Robbins and Davidson.i made my own videos of the entire books .woooooow man I feel very light now
    I passed it.
    Friends work hard .Indians are very hard working and big brains when it comes to competition.
    Best of luck for those appearing on dec 2015 exam.

    MCI test should be there….coz u hav to deal with humans..

    catagory system is a threat for patients…coz sc/st /rba students get selected while talented open merit students dont…
    e.g..a student from ladakh of jk state selected for just 90 marks among 225 questions…while open merit student having 169 marks..missed mbbs…coz ladakhi student was from a catagory…

    tell wht type of doctor wil be in the system from ladakh….

    now comes p.g exam…this ladakhi boy was selected again for just 100 marks…got pediatric seat…and open merit student with 183 marks…got NO seat in any branch…

    wht type of system is this???…wht type of doctor will this catagory student will be…who has put this threat in the syastemm??
    it the govt…who is not loking at this…

    dont blame docs…blame govt….

  14. Raghu Raghu Tuesday, September 29, 2015

    I fully support Dr Ramesh for his assesment that ifsame scraning test is implemented to the students who pass out from indian colleges , i am also sure the number will increase .it is better to scrap the exam .


    I fully agree. This teast must be on all Drs passing out even from India.

  17. rajat rajat Saturday, August 8, 2015

    in india it takes about 1 crore to do mbbs.. so we think of doing the mbbs course out of india.. but people think that we r hungry for money.. let mci have the test.. let them bring the best out of us.. but they should also test their own indian pg students.. or they should train the foreign pg students.. the main problem is with the corruption.. the donation they take in private collages in india..

    Concerns regarding quality of medical mafia controlled private medical colleges is head lines of international media. Scores of dubious private medical colleges openly auction their seats in crores and pass them from their own private universities by taking crores again. Their r everyday scams in govt medical admission N university exams. Uniform NATIONAL EXIT EXAM FOR MBBS GRADUATES INDIA is the only solution to know who is in fact competent. Various opinion have emerged in discussion. Some say foreign graduates bad. Others say private graduates bad. Uniform NATIONAL EXIT EXAM FOR MBBS GRADUATES INDIA will make out who is what.

    all problems will be solved if the capitation amount of studying mbbs is lessened… and the infrastructure is made equally good as per the colleges in abroad… so none of the children of india would have to leave their motherland to fulfill their dreams…reduce corruption, and maintain good healthcare system…its simple…

  32. BEJOY BEJOY Friday, January 16, 2015

    All I can comment is that because of the high donations and fees sructure in India it is making medical treatment expensive and Doctors after spending crores try to recover the amount spent by fleecing all patients irrespective of caste, creed, colour etc. Hospitals puts the onus of generating revenue by encouraging these doctors. This could change if MCI could apply same yard stick when conducting the screen test. And please do not quote as if the end number of Doctors churned out by the private medical colleges are qualified.

    i m also study in russia. now i m in 4th year .here in my college first diploma were to issued in 2014 ,30 june,but due to unknown reason ,the final student did not,t get their degree till now.when we have asked from health ministry .they told that this college have no authority to give diploma.when i came from india in 2011 .i submitted my document for eligibility certificate and got my eligibility to the name of my college”asian medical institute kyrgyzstan”.but ministry of health said that they will not provide dipoloma as college does not fullfill their criteria so we are helpless . at 2011 when we came our college was in mci listed please give us idea what should we do so as to save our money and precious time

  34. Dr Abu Galib Dr Abu Galib Wednesday, December 31, 2014

    1.Screening test should be appropriate for the level of training, expected from an MBBS graduate, who will start his/her internship.
    2. Also USMLE is not comparable to PLAB, one is for admittance to residency and the other is for jobs.
    3. Suggested format is basic and paraclinical paper, and Clinical paper and practical assessment.

    hi all,
    reading all these messages i would like to share, i am a passout from russia cleared fmge in 1st time, when it was conducted first time by dnb.( national board ). that time we asked them as we are giving the dnb equivalent exam with a name change as fmge, ( as the questions were like for pg entrance ) to secure a dnb seat for the qualified. but they denied to do so. and afterwards some docs from indian med.schools comment like these posts. even the people who got their mbbs in india under also comment, i agree screening test should be applied for all medical graduates irrespective of their let the mci announce this then we will see protests like hell form these so called / thinking to be from heaven / ext.ord.humans by getting a seat in india. dear friends fmge is a tough exam, it is made like that to show india is giving good than other countries. indian p.g pass outs will go to germany / hong kong for some speci traings, but mci does not recognise their pg’s. what a big joke. we opt illizarov from russia, surgical instruments from germany and other techs from some countries but we dont recognize their degrees if some one opts them directly there. bcoz nobody offers mci money to get them recognized. as commented by sup.court of mci is ” den of corruption ” many time its officials so called indian made docs were arrested by cbi even in new comity for the same. and every body says it approves only standards. let one med college in india say they have not bribed mci. after this long message only thing to say is ” daring ye hai india, yaha kuch bhi ho sakta hai ” and ” all is well “. and to other foreign graduates i say best of luck for fmge. if u really want to knockout u can and u will.

  37. dipanshu choudhary dipanshu choudhary Thursday, July 24, 2014

    the main point of foreign graduates about screening test is not to lift it but to make it necessary for all the medical graduates either he/she studied from india or abroad.than only you can make a correct assesment of quality in medical field and in regarding the point of bad infrastructure and poor quality of education in some part of USSR and china than i want to aware you that the infrastructure of a village of these countries is better than any district of india and if you want to see the poor knowledge than go to any privet medical college in india and meet est year students there you will find the students who even dont know the correct spelling of physiology and about the point of poor knowledge of foreign students yess it is correct but upto the practical knowledge not the theoritical knowledge and this is due to this exam which they have heavy burdenon them. and all above points are experienced by me in my life i have a large no. of friends and relatives in privats medical colleges of india and in USSR and china also.

  40. Dr Dwipannita Dr Dwipannita Tuesday, July 22, 2014

    I would like to comment on Dr. Manish’s comment..
    I also did my mbbs from philippines nd yes i did clear the indian pmt exam. I wont agree with your view that if u hv potential than u can easily pass the exam.. i guess u forgot how many seats those indian medical colleges have n how many appear each year not to forget the sc/st/obc reservation or lower percentage of marks requiring than the general category. Also if you wanna get admission in private college forget about the donation, you have to think twice for the yearly fees too.
    Also Dr. why would u say that foreign graduates have fake degrees?? I dunno about others but during my med schools i have to work as hard as possible to earn my required passing grades ortherwise i would fail.
    Please dont make it a stereotype that since someone got his/her mbbs degree from a foreign country, he/she is fake, wants to earn money etc etc.. as if u are working on a charitable basis.
    Even the indian graduates dunno so many basic things when i came across them during my internship here but thats ok bcoz life is itself a learning process and nobody knows everything unless u claim to know.
    According to me being a doctor requires passion to serve the needy irrespective from where you got your degree other than calling someone China or whtevr other country made doctor.
    Also there are several controversies and comments regarding the fmge exams which are definitely requires to be reviewed by the Indian medical council or the indian govt. to come out with some solutions.
    As a whole my point is we should stop pinpointing things at each other and work together for the better future of our country which is in serious need for doctors/healthcare professionals…
    Spread love not war 🙂

  42. Aafreen Sanober Aafreen Sanober Sunday, July 13, 2014

    I am satisfied with the comment given by a non medical person who wrote that instead of having mci screening test the government should provide training to those graduates mbbs students…I also want to study mbbs from russia because i belong to a middle class family and I can’t afford the fee of indian private medical college but my father is not permitting me just because i hve to give screening test to get a job in india…but i dont want to waste 1 yr of mine…n I guess now mr modi has been the prime minister and he had a slogan for his advertisement that ‘achchhe din aane wale hai kyunki hm modi ko jeetane wale hai’…ab hmne to vote de k r mr modi g ko jeeta k apna farz pura kiya ab bas mr modi g se request hai ki wo hamare din atche kr de…is problem ki solution ko dhunde and new rule banaye for the foreign graduates…I hope he will do it soon…

    I am not a doctor nor going for FMGE. I am no one to comments on talent many doctors have. But i have also came across many doctors graduated from India are the reason for many deaths. For instance kept giving medicine for gastric whereas it was a cancer. I have seen 6-7 deaths due to doctor wrong prescription taking is so easy on patients. I am not only the one I guess many other have seen it and these doctors were from private clinics. Forget about those are in govt hospital.
    Again there are so many good doctors out there in private and govt. I guess rather than having a examination MCI should have training facilities where they can qualify foreign educated doctors and let these foreign educated doctors pay for their training.
    It is contradicting to have list of foreign medical institutes approved by govt of India and later FMGE graduated from the same approved foreign medical Institutes.

  45. Shailendra Mishra Shailendra Mishra Sunday, October 20, 2013

    By reading all these comments of respective doctors and aspirants, i came to know that few people having problem of the International medical education system; some have problem with the gateway exam (FMGE) in the medical world in India; some talks about the prejudicial stuff by the Government of India about why Indian Graduates (passed in India) is not require to appear for screening test; and few people have provided some nice suggestions. Cannot we look and approach Government of India (GoI) for a comprehensive broad-term solution to the problems we are facing and writing in different forums.

    India having a different socio-economic conditions; we have different standards than the developed countries. if some Foreign Graduate (FG) is passed from European Country and come India for Medical Practice. It is expected to know for FG about Indian Medical system, socio-economic condition, demographic structure, prevalent diseases and their stages and so many other things. Some people have problem with the FMGE; they want it to be skipped. I do not understand why they want it to be skipped. Is it not reasonable to expect a FG to pass (150/300) the screening test before entering in the Indian Medical World? Yes, I can understand they are jobless with worried about several things during the preparation time. It really concern me too irrespective of the fact that we are lacking lots of Medical Professionals in our health Industry.

    Another proposition which come to my mind as we have put FMGE before the International Medical Graduates (IMG); are we not questing the International medical education system of the respective countries by putting exam of their education system? Are we providing better education than their education system? Even our single university does not come under top 200 universities of the world. Our political leaders, industrialists, and high profile people get medical treatment from those countries of which we question medical education in India. Is this not a great irony in itself?? This is an unegalitarian approach.

    I am really concern about those people who have not passed the FMGE; those who worried about their life, family economic conditions, repayment of loan and still struggling to pass the FMGE. In my opinion they should put some extra effort to pass the FMGE; because there is nothing which is going to change for you. May be 10 or 15 years down the line there are some improvement in the pattern but you cannot wait till that time. Things will surely change in future because we are standing on wrong foundation. Government of India should take some positive steps to overcome this problem.

    In my opinion GoI should put a regulation that FG can complete their internship before clearing FMGE and also work as medical professional on provisional basis (on junior level) till the time they pass the exam; The same kind of thing has been started in All India Bar Association Examination (AIBE) to qualify for Lawyers both National and Foreign Graduates. In that way lacking of medical professionals can be fulfilled in Indian Health Industry and even the FG will be happy.

    What do you say FG Doctor aspirants in India??

    I understand it’s mandatory to pass the exam but atheist be fair in asking sensible quesionwhich an undergraduate to know as basic not by asking deep detailed questions in PSM about the formulas of the IMR or GFR or about what’s the radius of the blood vessel with flow. You think a doctor who finished in India would be able to answer all the earlier post said whrich artery is felt to check pulse?if the student knew the answer he would answer and who don’t know will not doesn’t mean all who studied in Russia or China are worthless.then what’s the difference between a student who got 148 or about149 instead of the150 than a student who got zero who didn’t study?this isn’t fair.tell me is it?whoever reads this i am married i got a child still i worked hard studied alto for this exam i knowthedifficulties i went thru nd all has their difficulty but getting 148 do i deserve than somebody whoidnt study and just got a50 marks?please o something which brings justice’s hatred orthinkingof dying.

    I think after reading all comments these medical students should be given chance without mci exam I tthink so because no body mention in india also when they are conducting all india medical exams sc and st students need less marks to qualify for exam I personally know as when I gave test before I have passed because the cut percentage for general candidates is very high and st sc students passed easily inspite of getting less than averrage marks why there is such discriminity.anybody will answer how this students will see there patients in life please justify.
    in india this is the problem about caste if you are telling outside studied stdents are not good then in india also selection system is not fair.

    well, most of these foreign educated mbbs docs lack basic knowledge and training…… its a common perception and its true….. they had studied abroad in countries like tazakistan, uzbekistan , bulgaria etc where the infrastructure is too bad, or neggligible…. training is not adequate and teachers are few. moreover, all of them had not cleared medical entrance exams in India. so they take the slip route… whats wrong in controlling the input of foreign trained docs to meet the standards… every country , US, UK, Australia etc does it so y not we…… i remember a quote by a medical super of a hospital i went for a job…… I DONT WANT MY DOCTORS TO BE A THREAT TO MY PATIENTS…… it applies to all docs

    The eligibility test for graduates from foreign countries is very much necessary.It should not be abolished but has to be streamlined.

    This is because the practical and clinical experience in other countries are different when compared to the Indian conditions.

    Many aspirants who want to become doctors are going to Russia or China because the money spent to get a seat there is far less than what has to be spent for getting a seat in a private medical college, under management quota, in India.They should probably try to practice in those countries and earn money after they get degrees from those places

    There is a need to improve the standards of medical education in some private colleges in India.Seats in private medical colleges are far more than colleges in the government sector in India.Students in some private colleges are more oriented towards theory, rather then clinical and practical aspects of various diseases.

    Comments of Dr.M.C.Gupta have to be considered seriously and appropriate action should be taken

    FMGE is not a big test. The lives of our fellow citizens are precious. No compromise in quality esp in medical education.

  57. Dr T H Ramachandran Dr T H Ramachandran Saturday, November 24, 2012

    To add clarity to my earlier comment, I suggest that the system of licensing should be in place for all aspiring doctors, not only from abroad but also from all the institutions in India.
    For the practising doctors relicensing should be mandatory if they are to continue practice in India.

  58. Dr T H Ramachandran Dr T H Ramachandran Saturday, November 24, 2012

    The solution to improving the standards of medical qualified doctors to practice in India will be to have a common licensing exam after completing the undergraduate and post graduate courses. This should be common for all including those who have their degrees from recognised centers abroad. The exam should also test the persons ability to communicate and comprehend in the international language, English. It should also assess the candidate about the social responsibilites to the patient and nation at large. Thereafter, relicensing should be introduced every 5-10 years, specially emphasising on recent advances and practices. This exam should be conducted by an autonomous professional body without any political interference. Try this and you will see the results proving the worthiness of the changed system.

    irrespective of the country including u s a \ u k \ europe \ …. one has to clear u s m l e \ plab \ tofel\ iltes . in the same manner it should be made compulsary each & every one to clear some \ same kind of standard test \ exams like part i , ii & iii + clinical exam before they get a licence to pratice medicine . there is lot of disparity between students passing out from different colleges. as per rule one should have min . 75% attendence to appear for the exams . you may not believe with hardly 30 to 45 % they are allowed to appear \ allowed to take \ give exams .when there is biometrics for teachers ,why not for the students.let the respective universities monitor the attendance thus,otherwise there is no need for anybody to take any efforts(teachers and few sincere students).we can give them degrees sittting at home. when it comes to internal assessment they have it excess. hardly any one fails in the practical \ clinical exams , it is freely awarded by the so called silly examiners with the stupid explanation why should we fail them & get bad name ? if at all he \ she has to fail let them fail in theory . even during the paper correction the same silly examiners with callous attitude just give them passing marks ? ( most often \ most of them). i get a feeling that is the epicentre for producing ill trained doctors . the so called good doctors are either siphoned away by the so called corporate hospitals , or pack up towards west \ set up their own establishments\ move towards gulf.and rest are spread all around to refer the patients after literally ripping them to so called referral \ higher centres .( to wash off their hands).then why not do the same with these doctors who have passed from universities and colleges recognised by mci. in what way can we say they are better than others.

    Dr MC Gupta has made amply clear about the whole issue.

  61. Saikumar G Saikumar G Friday, November 23, 2012

    Now those who have money are going abroad for medical study in china and some former Russian countries.If the candidate gets medical degree with proper training in those medical colleges,he should be able to pass the screening test easily.

  62. DR. S.P.SINGH DR. S.P.SINGH Thursday, November 22, 2012

    We all are talking about the training standards.
    I have one question ? Can any one of you answer.
    When a student goes out of the country , MCI issues eligibility certificate OK
    Now he come back to India , clears the Screening Exam in first attempt OK
    MCI issues provisional registration for undergoing Internship ( HONORARY) in Indian hospital.We know this is part of MBBS training. So hospital gets one worker .
    Now MCI issues Permanent registration.
    DNB board is conducting NEET PG for entrance to PG exam.
    The merit list shall be prepared on the basis of State list /Domicile.
    Unfortunately DNB board makes a notification that the students with foreign qualification shall not be included in the state / domicile merit>
    CAN ANY ONE EXPLAIN , WHY THIS INJUSTICE TO THESE STUDENTS.,WHY THIS DISPARITY . iT IS AN EXPLOITATION OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT OF INDIAN NATIONAL : After all they have shown that they are capable. They completed their partial training in India , They have done their higher secondary and born in a particular state than why they should be deprived of this facility.

    It requires the attention of all experts , .

  63. Dr. M C Gupta, Advocate Dr. M C Gupta, Advocate Thursday, November 22, 2012

    The “Failed foreign medical graduates” are demanding exemption from the eligibility test.
    A–Such a demand begs the following questions:
    1—Why should the MCI lower the test standards because some students repeatedly fail the test?
    2—Why should the Indian public be exposed to treatment by incompetent “doctors”?
    3—Such a demand has never been made in respect of eligibility test conducted by the USA (USMLE) and UK (PLAB). Why should the demand be made in respect of a test conducted by India?
    4—Why don’t these foreign graduates practice medicine honourably in the countries where their qualifications are recognised? Once they are licenced here, they will be the first ones to get further experience and qualifications in India and then ditch the country again by getting jobs and settling abroad on the basis of such further experience and qualifications.

    B—The above news was posted on a doctors’ list of which I am a member. Some responses there were as follows:
    1—From RIMS, Ranchi:
    “What is the level of merit possessed by the foreign degree holders is known to everybody. Two examples from my institution are as follows:
    i)—A doctor with a degree from Russia was asked “In which artery is a patient’s pulse usually felt? His answer—“Pulmonary artery”.
    ii)—Another doctor with a degree from Russia, who was working in a private nursing home in Ranchi, was going to start a milk drip intravenously rather than through the Ryle’s tube. Luckily for the patient, the nurse on duty saw and prevented this from happening.”
    2—From a cardiologist:
    “I think the quality of training given in some countries is very poor. I am an interventional cardiologist working in a tertiary care center. I have seen that the graduates from some countries do not know even the basics of medicine. I shudder to think how they can be absorbed in the system without a screening test. There are some students who are quite promising and they anyway qualify the screening test. If MCI lifts the screening test then why not let the quacks join the system?”

    3—From a corp[orate hospital:

    “Dear Sentimentals (who all are trying to promote mediocrity in Medical World”,

    May I suggest you a simple test:
    i)-Make three groups of freshly passed students, 10 each from Russia; government medical colleges in India; and, private colleges charging capitation fee.
    ii)—Let a uniform test comprising of 20 questions be given to them.
    iii)—Let the answers be judged independently by each of a panel of 5 doctors.

    The results will make you realize what and how they are taught !
    Ask me, I keep on interviewing young aspirant doctors coming to Delhi and wanting to join Corporate Hospitals. Russia trained doctors get a nod only when no one else is available to join a private hospital in Delhi!

    C–However, I would surely suggest that the eligibility test should be made much more frequent than twice a year so that the candidates don’t have to sit idle and unemployed for long. It can even be made an on-line examination. It is this request they should make rather than a request for dilution of standards.

    if same scraning test is implemented to the students who pass out from indian colleges , i am sure the number will increase by 10 folds ( 100000 ). this unfare on the part mci \ govt of india to use two different yard sticks to assessment of the students . due to pressure taticks , influence & money involved the govt has mandated this kind rule. why can’t the govt / m c iintruduce same rule for the indian graduates too. then india becomes highest # of doctors with out a job. believe me most of our medical colleges are nothing but filth producing factories . these doctors comming from such colleges have licence to knock the patients . dr. ramesh vardhan .
