Hi.. am doing my mbbs 3rd yr now in China.. total duration of my course is 5yrs + 1yr of internship... when will i be eligible to give fmge...? In 4th yr or 5th yr or after internship??

Srijika Bhattacharyya 18th Feb, 2020
Hello,
If your college is recognised and your medical degree is recognised in India you can give the FMGE exam after you have finished your internship in China and have obtained your degree certificate.
After passing FMGE you have to do a compulsory one year internship in India after which you can practice or choose to give NEET PG.
Hope this helps.
All the best

Animesh Vats Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

Hi,

Well I would like to tell you that after MBBS program ends a doctor can apply for USMLE exam . In USA once you are done with your studies, you are required to give USMLE exam which is organised in three levels and once you qualify all the three levels then you are allowed to get into residency program but finding one is really difficult. USMLE can not guarantee you residency rather it will only help you in allowing you to go search for residency in US hospitals. Same goes for international students as well but the level of difficulty is a lot and getting residency is the most difficult thing to do.

I hope my answer helps.

All the best.
