 MLAG condemns exit exam for MBBS pass-outs


Despite of having a valid degree most students will not able to practice the medicine just because they could not pass through the exit exam, conducted by the government.

The Union Ministry of Health and the Medical Council of India (MCI) are considering the introduction of a single, nationwide exit test for those who have passed the MBBS examination. The MCI's board of governors has unanimously accepted the proposal chalked out by the health ministry.

Speaking to TOI, Dr Sandeep Dhavan, founder trustee, MLAG said though the objective of the proposal is laudable. The exit exam should be common final professional examination of MBBS, which should be on par with AIPMT. The final professional exam of all clinical subjects should be common across the nation and should not held by individual universities.

Expressing their opinion over the new move Medicos' group, in a statement, said the government has mooted a plan to hold an exit exam after MBBS so that government and private college pass outs maintain the same standard.
