LIMRA, which has been giving counseling sessions along with all types of help to the students who aspire to pursue their medical education abroad, is providing new facilities and training opportunities from this academic year, which are never even thought of by such other educational agencies in India. They are:
All Foreign-qualified doctors have to get through a Qualifying Examination called Foreign Medical Graduates Examination, conducted by Medical Council of India. Then only they will be permitted to practise as doctors in India. All medical graduates find it difficult to get through, as there is a break in their studies. In order to find out a solution, LIMRA has been conducting coaching classes from last year onwards in Chennai.
LIMRA students will have these coaching classes totally FREE of cost. So far one has to spend around Rs.75,000 for these classes at Delhi.
In order to make these classes fully effective hassle free, LIMRA is establishing its office at Davao Medical University. LIMRA is the only agency in India that runs an office at the Philippines to take care of its students. This office will take care of the MCI Coaching classes and render all help to the newly admitted students. It will assist in the renewal of Visas, arranging air travel to India, fulfilling the needs of the students by liaising with the Medical University authorities. While the parents of the students visit Davao, this office will help them feel at home.
LIMRA is also taking efforts to give training on Hospital Administration and Clinical Treatment to the students when they study at Davao. For this, steps are being taken with the 100 year old Brokenshire Memorial Hospital (BMH), Southern Philippines Medical Centre and San Pedro Hospital at Davao.
LIMRA will also conduct coaching classes for PG Medical Entrance Examinations (NEET- PG) along with Prof Dr. J.Rajkumar, (Ex Chairman of Surgeons Association of India, Founder of Lifeline Group of Hospitals (Lima) at the Hospital itself. Our renowned Professor in Medical Education Dr. C.M.K. Reddy has consented to guide these classes.
LIMRA is also building up a library with modern equipment and books for the FMG and NEET PG students.
It is to be noted that no other educational Agency in India is providing all the above facilities both at Davao and in India, for its students.
