Dear Students, Parents and their families,
In these trying times of Covid-19 epidemic, we wish you all a very very healthy and happy life.
Due to Covid-19 lock down, the life across the globe has been disrupted and most of the activities have to be rescheduled.
However, S.S.R. Medical College is, probably the one of the very very few international medical colleges, which have successfully conducted its Professional University Examinations in May/June & Nov./Dec.2021, and the UNIVERSITY RESULTS announced in time, thanks to the wholehearted preparation and cooperation of our diligent and sincere students, faculty, the University of Mauritius and above all, the Govt. of Mauritius, which organised special flights for our students, who were stranded in their native countries due to Covid-19 lock down and could return in time to appear for these Examinations.
Their final results have been announced by the University, so that they are in time to take their Registration licentiate examinations in time in various countries of their choices.
Our Outstanding Success Rate in Foreign Medical Graduates (FMG) Exams/Screening Test in India:
As usual, once again posting an outstanding success rate (99%) in FMG screening Test in India, out of 79 of our Indian graduates, who appeared for FMG Screening Test/Exit Exam held in Sept.'21; 78 out of 79 have passed this Screening Test. Remaining 1 girl graduate dropped out of the screening test exam due to medical reasons.
Ours is, probably, the only College, which performs so well and posts almost above 90% pass rate almost every year in the FMG Screening Test. (We have not written 99% pass in view of the absence of all data and it is better to err on the side of caution).
The overall statistics about the FMG Screening Test said to be mentioned by the Hon. Dr. Prahalad Joshi, Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Govt. of India about medical graduates from China, CIS countries like Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan,Tajikistan, Georgia, Armenia, etc, Philippines, and some other neighboring countries, is failure rate of about 90% i.e. pass rate is only about 10%. (vide an article in Times of India dated 1st March 2022 reported by Shreya HS, ToI correspondent).
Despite such a high failure rate, most of the students are lured by the students recruiting agencies to such countries for considerations other than academics and cheaper options, which ultimately proves to be much more costlier at the end.
The data mentioned in the article does not mention the statistics from our College in Mauritius.
Out of our more than 1700 medical doctors graduating from our SSR Medical College, we are not aware of any one who has appeared in the Indian FMG Screening Test and has not passed it, except may be some one, who is not in our notice; and has opted some other family profession and has opted to not appear and avail all the provided chances..
Challenge : As such, we challenge and will be happy to learn, if any applicant seeking admission in the MBBS Course at our place proves the above fact wrong, with documentary evidence supported by an affidavit from our concerned failed medical graduates, certifying that he/she has failed in the FMG Screening Test in India despite availing all the provided attempts and their no. is more than 10% in a particular year of reference i.e. our success rate is less than 90% in a particular year.
Such one applicant, the one who approaches us first of all, with the above mentioned documentary evidence, proving our claim of success rate of 90% for a particular batch in a reference year to be wrong, will be given a remission of Rs. 7,50,000/- (Indian Rs. Seven Lakhs Fifty Thousands only) / or US$ 10.000/- by the College in the total Fee.
In a welcome development to test and ensure the minimum thresh hold of skill and knowledge expected from a doctor, the Govt. of India regulations now require that all the students graduating from Indian Medical Colleges/Deemed Universities/ Govt. Universities must pass this Exit Exam from this year in the same way as the students graduating from foreign medical colleges/Universities; which will be a real test of the level of teaching and training at all the medical institutions, Indian as well as overseas.
Tuition Fee: US$8000/- Per Year (For details see icon Fee Structure).
Hostel Facility: On the Campus, safe and separate hostels for Boys and Girls with attached Bath and Toilet.

The Indian Ocean Medical Institute Trust (IOMIT) was established in 1996 with the avid objective of promotion of education and learning and setting up a medical college in Mauritius in the name of the 'Father of the Nation' late Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam (SSR), who incidentally was a doctor also.
Mr. R.P.N.Singh, an educationist and social planner from India is the Founder Chairman and Managing Trustee of the Trust for Life.
The SSR Medical College was inaugurated on 18th Sept.1999 by Dr the Hon. Navinchandra Ramgoolam, Prime Minister of the Republic of Mauritius.
Being the first medical college in Mauritius, the idea has been to setup & develop a campus of international standards, which has subsequently become the nerve center of medical education not only in the southern African region but in the whole of Indian Ocean Rim countries including Malaysia, India, Africa and the Gulf region.
Following the sterling success of the SSR Medical College, Mauritius- the land of sun, sand and shooting stars, is fast emerging as a ‘Knowledge Hub’ and center of medical education in the Indian Ocean Rim region. Students (mostly from the Diaspora) from 17 countries such as India, Nepal, the U.K., USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique, UAE, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have taken admission at the SSR Medical College.
The visionary Prime Minister of Mauritius could immediately foresee the long term value of such a medical campus for the country which would establish Mauritius as an education exporting country and brain service destination in the entire Indian Ocean Rim region and transform Mauritius 'from a land of leisure to a land of learning'.
The policy planners of the Government of Mauritius including the representatives of the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education Science & Technology, Ministry of Economic Planning, International Trade and Development, Tertiary Education Commission, University of Mauritius and Chairman of the IOMIT deliberated together the modalities and setting up of the SSR Medical College in a Task Force under the Central Policy Analysis and Evaluation Unit, Prime Minister's Office, Government of Mauritius.
It was mandated and approved by the Task Force and the Govt of Mauritius to set up the SSR Medical College in affiliation to the University of Mauritius, which would award the Graduate (MBBS) and Post Graduate (M.D./M.S.) degrees.
The SSR Medical College is affiliated to the University of Mauritius.
The College is duly approved by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Mauritius and the MBBS degree is recognised by the Medical Council of Mauritius / the WHO / Medical Board of California, USA and almost in all other countries of the world, subject to local regulations and passing the local licentiate exams.
The Ministry of Health and Quality of life has promised 'unflinching support' (See Hon.Health Minister's Commitment in Massages) and provides state of the art J L Nehru, Victoria SSR and other specialty hospitals having more than 1000 beds for the clinical training of the students of the SSR Medical College.
The long cherished dream of our Chairman and like-minded people from India and Mauritius as well as the desire of the Mauritian people to have a medical college in Mauritius, has now become a reality with the active and avowed support of the Government and the people of Mauritius.
The word wide recognition of our MBBS degree is self evident from the fact that hundreds of our graduates are already working in almost all the countries, where they have desired and chosen to work; such as in the USA, U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, UAE, Nepal, Sri Lanka and India etc.
The MBBS degree of the SSR Medical College has been recognised by the Medical Board of California, USA and the SSR Medical College has been recognised for listing in the IMED/ECFMG, USA and the WHO. The listing can be viewed on the respective websites.
This enabled our medical graduates to register and practice medicine across the world and specially in the USA and California, where recognition rules are the toughest. As a result, more than hundreds of our medial graduates are already practicing medicine in most reputed hospitals like Mt Sinai, Johns Hopkins's USA/ UK/ France and in many other developed countries
Recognition by the MCI:
As per regulations in India, any Indian citizen with a foreign medical graduate degree (FMG) has to pass the screening test (EXIT exam), held twice every year by the National Board of Examination, Govt of India.
The MCI has 'dispensed off' the requirement of "Eligibility Certificate" with effect from 1st June 2018; and after 1st June 2018, the result of the NEET pass shall be deemed to be treated as Eligibility Certificate for joining a foreign medical MBBS / Undergraduate course. (vide MCI Public Notice dated 8th March,2018, issued by Dr. Reena Nayyar, Secretary(I/C)).
The Eligibility Certificate requirement was not necessary from 2013 to 2014 but was reintroduced in 2016 and was mandatory till 1st June 2018.
Indian Applicants are advised to check the latest status with the MCI / WEBSITE and obtain Eligibility Certificate, if they have applied or taken admission before 1st June 2018 or they must have passed NEET exam, if seeking/taking admission after 1st June, 2018.
The SSR medical College graduates have the stellar record of having Outstanding pass rate*, at this stringent MCI screening test, which speaks of the level of teaching and training at the College. However, the FMG results are dependent on individual performance at this examination.The list of all our graduates, who have cleared this Screening test and are registered with the Medical Council of India can be viewed at our website (Alumni List).
As usual, once again, our graduates have reportedly posted 99% pass (at first attempt) in the screening test of MCI, as per results published in Dec.2021.
(Some News Papers have published misleading incorrect reports about Screening Test Results without collecting the data about the SSR Medical College or without verifying the facts about the results of the SSR Medical College graduates. The matter has been brought to their notice. Though such reporters seldom publish such corrections.)
*NBE has informed in reply to a RTI that it does not maintain data for FMG in format which shows SPECIFIC College wise number of the total medical GRADUATES appearing/passed and failed in the FMG Examination.(Ref No. RTI/CPIO-1251A/EXAM/NBE/2016/16642 dated Dec.28,2016).
"Mauritius was made first and the paradise was copied after it" Mark Twain the famous American wrote in his book "Following the Equator".
This paradise is located on the 20th parallel just north of the tropic of Capricorn, 1265 miles from the east coast of Africa, and about 2500 miles in the south west of the Indian coast. The Country and the location of the SSR Medical College can be seen on the Google Map.
Passing through myriad vicissitudes, it was finally occupied by the British in 1810 after the Napoleonic wars. Mauritius achieved independence on 12th March, 1968 with Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam as its first Prime Minister and was proclaimed a republic on 12th March 1992. Mauritius today is universally acknowledged as being one of the most democratic and one of the safest countries in the developing world.
From basically a mono-crop agricultural economy at the time of independence in 1968, today, Mauritius has achieved the status of a Newly Industrialised Country with a fairly stable population, almost zero unemployment, and per capita income of about US $ 8000. The economy is based on sugar, manufacturing and tourism. It also belongs to the category of high Human Development Index countries. Mauritius today is picture of a thriving economy with proven democratic traditions.
The population of this rainbow country comprises of about 52% of Hindu Indians, 16% of Muslim Indians, 29% of Christians of European, African and Chinese descent and 1% of Buddhists of Chinese descent. English is the official language though French is used extensively. Creole and Bhojpuri Hindi are other common mediums of communication. Living in perfect peace and harmony, Mauritius is true model of a global village and symbol of unity in diversity. With its ethnic diversity and rainbow culture, Mauritius is a home away from home and is also known as a "Mini India".
Mauritius is well connected by air with the major cities of the Indian Ocean Rim countries, Gulf (Dubai) and Europe. Air Mauritius flies direct twice a week from New Delhi and Chennai/Bangluru and thrice a week from Mumbai to Mauritius. Air Mauritius has always been a contributor in the developmental process of the nation. As such, it has taken a keen interest and provides the students of the SSR Medical College a substantial discount (20%) on all Air Mauritius flights, which is subject to renewal annually. Emirate also has a very good connectivity from Hyderabad, Mumbai/ Delhi via Dubai.
