Edited By Aditi Narendra | Updated on Apr 24, 2024 04:20 PM IST | #FMGE

There were 54,924 Indian medical graduates who took the FMGE in 2022. Out of these, 5,333 were those who chose to pursue study medicine in Ukraine. They had graduated from 36 institutes offering an MBBS course in Ukraine.

As per our analysis of the number of Indians graduating from foreign countries offering medical education such as such as China has 101, Russia has 62, and Bangladesh has 61 institutes represented in the FMGE. This makes Ukraine the fourth largest section of the 470 foreign medical colleges from which the Foreign Medical Graduate Exam (FMGE) examinees graduated.

FMGE is a licence test that foreign medical graduates must take to practise modern medicine in India. Of the 5,333 graduates who completed an MBBS course in Ukraine, only 1,438 cleared the FMGE in 2022—this makes the pass percentage 27 per cent. This percentage is slightly higher than the overall pass percentage of FMGE in 2022.

In the table below, Careers360 has listed year-wise the number of colleges offering MBBS in Ukraine from where Indian students completed the four year long medical education course.
