No, MBBS students studying abroad cannot get a license to practice medicine in India without clearing the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). The NEET is a mandatory requirement for all students who wish to pursue MBBS studies in India, regardless of whether they study in India or abroad. The reason for this requirement is to ensure that all doctors practicing in India have a minimum level of knowledge and competence. The NEET is a comprehensive exam that assesses students’ understanding of physics, chemistry, biology, and general knowledge. By requiring all doctors to clear the NEET, the Medical Council of India (MCI) can ensure that the quality of medical care in India is maintained.
There are a few exceptions to this rule. For example, students who have completed their MBBS degree from a country that is recognized by the MCI may be eligible to get a license without clearing the NEET. However, these students will still need to clear the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE) before they can start practicing in India.
The FMGE is a screening test for foreign medical graduates who wish to practice medicine in India. The test is designed to assess whether or not these graduates have the same level of knowledge and competence as Indian medical graduates.
