  The rate of failure among Indian students in the FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduate Examination) is high, which is often attributed to the lack of necessary skills for practicing medicine in India. This exam has become increasingly competitive over the years, with only the best candidates being selected after a rigorous assessment process. However, with a significant shortage of doctors in the country, the failure of medical degree holders to qualify in the FMGE will only exacerbate the problem for patients. Therefore, passing the FMGE is not only crucial for a student's medical career but also for the betterment of the country's healthcare system. While self-study is vital, seeking guidance from experienced professionals can enhance the learning experience. Kings International Medical Academy (KIMA) provides high-quality coaching for FMGE to foreign medical graduates from various countries, aiming to help them achieve success in the exam. Dr. Akhilesh, a leading faculty in our country gave an insight into the subject of FSM.
