NEW DELHI: National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) has started the registration process for the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE) December 2023 on the official website, natboard.edu.in.

Candidates applying for the FMGE December 2023 should be a citizen of India or an overseas citizen of India. The applicants should possess a primary medical qualification from a recognised institution, which must be confirmed by the concerned Indian embassy of that country.

They will have to submit the requisite documents as evidence to prove that they have qualified for the final examination of primary medical examination on or before the specified date. The National Medical Commission (NMC) has also provided guidelines for students who have completed MBBS from Ukraine and Philippines.

Guidelines for graduates from Ukraine

Candidates should have completed a medical course in a medical institute in Ukraine (course equivalent to MBBS Course in India) as offline mode with or without one year of internship and have returned to India. They are required to obtain provisional registration from the concerned state medical council and thereafter undergo one year compulsory rotating medical internship as per the CRMI Regulation, 2021. Such students will be eligible to receive stipend in parity with Indian Medical Graduates.

Candidates who had a break in their final year and returned to India owing to COVID-19 pandemic or Russia-Ukraine War and completed FMG course, including examination, in online mode are also eligible. They will have to undergo a one-year clinical clerkship (CC) in India in lieu of deficiency in their training from their parent medical college. The Indian Medical College may charge clerkship fee from such candidates maximum up to Rs 5,000 per month.

After successful completion of 1 year clinical clerkship and supported by log book followed by authentication from concerned college authority, they will be allowed to begin CRMI which may be done in medical college or any recognised institute. Such students at the stage of CRMI, shall be eligible to receive stipend equivalent to the stipend received by IMGs of that college and institution.

Allotment of such students to clinical clerkship or Internship programme will be done through concerned DME and SMC, in consultation with each other.
