The three graduates will now return to India to appear for the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE) next month, a necessary step to practice medicine in India.
The girls' parents said that in 2018, our dream of seeing our children become doctors seemed distant due to the intense competition and high fees of private colleges in India. Today, that dream has been fulfilled.

Udaipur — Udaipur is celebrating the academic achievements of three of its daughters, Sakshi Purbiya, Nikita Purbiya, and Kunika Gupta, who have successfully completed their MBBS studies from a prestigious medical college in China.

The trio embarked on their medical journey in 2018 and, after six years of rigorous education and internship, have been awarded their medical degrees.

The students' families are elated with this accomplishment. Mahendra Purbiya, father of Sakshi and Nikita, expressed his pride and relief, recalling the challenges they faced in pursuing medical education in India. Sharing details with The Mooknayak, he said , "In 2018, our dream of seeing our children become doctors seemed distant due to the intense competition and high fees of private colleges in India. Today, that dream has been fulfilled".

K N Gupta, father of Kunika Gupta, shared similar sentiments. "There was some apprehension when we sent our children abroad, but these six years have flown by, and today, we are overjoyed to see them become doctors."

Education counselor Vikas Chhajed, who played a crucial role in guiding the students, highlighted the changes in regulations for medical students studying abroad.

"Before 2021, these students benefited from the recognition of China's internship in India, which shortened their study duration. However, the National Medical Commission (NMC) revised the rules in November 2021, making an additional year of internship mandatory for foreign medical graduates. This change has led to a shift in students' preferences towards government medical universities in Russia," he explained.

The three graduates will now return to India to appear for the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE) next month, a necessary step to practice medicine in India. Their journey serves as an inspiration to many aspiring medical students facing similar challenges in India.

This milestone not only marks a significant personal achievement for Sakshi, Nikita, and Kunika but also underscores the importance of seeking alternative educational opportunities abroad.

Udaipur celebrates their success, looking forward to the positive impact they will undoubtedly have on the medical field in India.
