Advisory for Indian Students

Advisory/Information for Indian students desirous of pursuing Medical Studies in the Philippines

Since 2019, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has made it mandatory for students to clear the NEET- UG (National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test-Under Graduate). This is the entry examination for all undergraduate medical education in India and also a pre-requisite to pursue medical education abroad.

Similarly, as per the IMC (Indian Medical Council) Act 1956, all students who acquire a medical qualification from countries outside India are required to clear Foreign Medical Graduates Exam (FMGE) in order to practice in India. The Exam is conducted by the National Board for Examination (NBE) twice (i.e in June and December) every year.

It is, therefore, advisable that Indian Students seeking to undertake medical education in the Philippines take into account the pass percentage of students in FMGE of those who have studied in Institutions in the Philippines. 

For ready reference, the pass percentage of Indian students who completed their medical course in the Philippines in FMGE for the period 2015-2018 is given below:
