MBBS in Philippines and MCI screening test NEXT – National Exit Test

MBBS in Philippines, MCI and Admissions

Becoming a doctor is a dream for many – MBBS in Philippines does just that. Also, heavily populated countries like India need more doctors, hence, the need to MBBS abroad. MBBS in India is very costly and the options are less due to NEET and heavy capitation fees. That’s why people choose to do MBBS abroad. Options are to do MBBS in Philippines, Georgia, China, Ukraine & Russia.

In all these countries, the Philippines has proved to be the most reliable country to do MBBS for Indian students. Medical graduates from  Philippines have proved themselves when they practice or choose to pursue post graduation. They tend to attract good positions and higher salaries when they work in India and in other countries like UK, America, Europe, Singapore, Canada, California, Thailand etc.

Various reasons are given for this phenomenon:

    • US based curriculum:
      Unlike colleges in Ukraine, Georgia, China and Russia, credible colleges in Philippines like UV Gullas College of Medicine follow a US based curriculum. UV Gullas College of Medicine has being in existence for more than 40 years. 

      US based medical curriculum is more practical oriented and has problem-solving based approach. M.D. degree offered by UV Gullas College of Medicine is globally recognized by CHED, FAIMER, MCI, MCC, MCT, GCM & USMLE. This will help the students to get an advantage when they apply for post graduations. This also opens up job opportunities worldwide with higher salary packages.

      Britain with its recent announcement of welcoming Indian Doctors to UK for practicing MBBS Abroad and settling down in Great Britain has opened up a far wider berth of opportunity. MBBS in Philippines has these advantages especially in  a college like UV Gullas College of Medicine, Cebu, Philippines.

    • Weather Conditions Similar to India:

      Due to similar weather conditions to that of in India, MBBS in Philippines is much better as it has to tackle disease patterns that are similar in nature. This helps in practicing MBBS in India far easier since the diagnosis that the medical students practiced is directly implementable. Hence students who practice in the Philippines tend to adapt easily to Indian conditions compared to students studying in Ukraine, Russia, Georgia, China etc.

      Students aspiring for MBBS, should be careful in choosing a good college in Philippines, which can brought to conclusion based on credibility and paper works. For example, UV Gullas College of Medicine is one of the seven colleges to be approved by the Medical Council of Thailand for studies abroad. The list of Medical bodies that have recognized the UV Gullas College of Medicine, provides a strong background to the facility and the Management, College and Campus. UV Gullas College of Medicine offers extensive clinical training.

    • Hostel :The Hostel facility offered by a college ensures that the students are safe, secure and focused. A teenager doesn’t need a reason to be distracted. It is imperative that the student must be kept in an environment that offers control, yet also freedom. China, Russia, Ukraine and Georgia do not offer hostel facility. The students are forced to look for an accommodation, and spend heavily trying to set up a flat. Then they have to spend time cooking and cleaning. Safety is another matter of concern when students stay outside the college campus on their own.UV Gullas College of Medicine Hostel is provided and directly handled by the Admission teams. Also, the UV Gullas College of Medicine Authorized Admission Office in Vadapalani, handles the UV Gullas College of Medicine hostel present within the campus. Here, the UV Gullas College of Medicine hostel has 24 hours security and is under CCTV surveillance. They provide separate boys and girls hostel. Veg and Non-Veg Indian Food is provided in the UV Gullas College of Medicine Hostel.
    • Hospital Tie Ups :

      UV Gullas College of Medicine has a tie-up with some of the best hospitals in the Philippines to give their students extensive practical experience and clinical training. This will help students to gain an edge when they start to practice or when they apply for post graduations.

    • USMLE & NEXT passing rate:

      An important check for Indian Students to consider when choosing MBBS Abroad, is the USMLE (American Medical Association Screening Test) or NEXT (Medical Council of India(MCI) Screening Test) passing rate.

      With the huge practical exposure, students doing MBBS in Philippines hold the highest passing rate in MCI screening tests like the FMGE(Foreign Medical Graduates Exam). FMGE has been renamed as NEXT (National Exit Test) conducted by the NBE(National Board of Examinations) from 2022. Passing rate of graduates who have done MBBS in Philippines is way more than students from Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, China & other countries. The MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) coaching that they get in their respective exams help a lot.

    • For USMLE, the scoring system that was implemented till 2019, has been removed to create a new system of scoring where the candidate is just rated as pass or fail. This has dramatically changed the statistics of UV Gullas college of Medicine and today we proudly say that the total passing rate of the stands at approximately 90%.

MCI screening test 

Medical Council of India (MCI) used to conduct screening tests for medical graduates who studied MBBS abroad. It was compulsory for MBBS graduates to pass the MCI screening test(FMGE). This was to ensure there was not quackery and they acquire their license to practice as doctors in India.

Today, the screening test has been made mandatory for any student pursuing a career in Medicine (MBBS). For those who are doing MBBS in India, or MBBS Abroad, like MBBS in Philippines, China, Russia, Ukraine or Georgia.

Indian students need to check the previous passing rate of entrance exams of any college before they choose to do their MBBS there.

  1. It is a great advantage if the college & the MBBS course is recognized by MCI. Check for this always when choosing colleges in Philppines to study MBBS.
