Hello sir, I am a Nepalese citizen and have completed my UG from Nepal (Kathmandu University). I have passed the licensing exam conducted by Nepal Medical Council (NMC) and registered in NMC. Do I need to give FMGE or any other exams to appear in this upcoming may 2020 pg entrace exam for MD/MS??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 16th Jan, 2020

Summi, if you are a Foreign National and if you want to study MD/MS in India, you should appear for NEET PG. FMGE is for Indian Medical Graduates who have completed their MBBS abroad. This is the license exam for them to practise in India. But if you are a Foreign National, FMGE doesn't apply to you. You should appear for NEET PG and secure a seat as a Foreign National to study MD/MS here.


If I qualify FMGE then where should I start working? Private or Government hospitals. Its because I dont have any idea about practical knowledge.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 12th Jan, 2020

FMGE is an examination to allow Indian Medical Graduates who have studied abroad to practise legally in India. If you have studied MBBS, you should have attended Clinical postings and should have completed your mandatory internship period of the Country you have studied MBBS in. That should be an enough practical exposure. But if you do not have any idea about practical knowledge, it is alarming. You might not get posted in Government Hospitals right away because it is a Government job. You may have to start working in a small clinic first. Rather than working it should be a learning experience for you.


currently I am going to nepal for mbbs so after doing that what should I do to practise in india ? also can I give pg exam or ms exam in india before passing fmge exam held by MCI. I am very very confused and overwhelmed. I never wanted to go nepal for mbbs but family pressure won I guess

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 12th Jan, 2020

Anshu, once you complete your MBBS, you have to appear for FMGE. Post your succesful clearing of FMGE exam, you can practise in India. You cannot give NEET PG before you clear FMGE. And if you are going to Nepal this year, the NEET PG exam will be scrapped within 3 years and there will be another admission process for PG courses. NMC will come up with a new admission process within the next 3 years which means any news that you absorb now will be changed by the time you come back with a MBBS degree. And regarding your last sentence, sometimes life is strange and you do not know which door opens which opportunity. Just go ahead and take the opportunity that your parents are giving you. It might change your life for good.
