No any test for medical graduates, educated abroad, pass eligibility test

“It is a paradox that the Union health ministry and Niti Aayog are exempting foreign medical graduates, who seldom see patients. They can practice any where in the country without any quality checks,” said Dr N Sulphi, state secretary elect of Indian Medical Association. At present, on an average 3,000 to 4,000 foreign-educated MBBS graduates are reaching India each year. When there was a stipulation to pass the eligibility test to become a registered medical practitioner in India, the pass percentage was 15, said Dr Mohanan.
“Now, this quality check has been stopped at a time when the graduates from countries like China, Russia, Ukraine, Philippines and African countries are passing out without seeing any patient,” he added.
