Economic Times, a publication of Times of India Group, has covered PLAB issues and RxPG website in Todays Issue (6-09-04). Following is the excerpt from the story as it appeared in the newspaper.

"RxPGonline, a website to guide postgrad medical students started by two ex-students of Maulana Azad Medical College in Delhi, Dr Himanshu Tyagi and Dr Ankush Vidyarthi has become the most comprehensive resource globally for doctors and medical students who wish to study and work in countries like UK, US, New Zealand and Australia.

The site has reported on the negative trends in PLAB job opportunities and monitors major British newspapers, journals like British Medical Journal and websites of all the Royal Colleges and the British Medical Association press releases to provide up to date information about the PLAB exam, NHS and job scenario.

“We started the website in college as a hobby but now it hosts a huge amount of resources about going abroad for studies and jobs.

The various forums are mediated by experts and we have developed specialised areas for PLAB tests and other international exams that doctors need to do. After 9/11, when getting US visas became very tough for medical students, UK emerged as a popular destination."

"The two-part PLAB exam costs Rs 46,000 and after getting to UK, doctors have to enrol at coaching institutes to prepare for the clinical part of the exams,’’ says Vidyarthi, director, produts, RxPG Medical Solutions Private Limted (India) and now a doctor at Delhi’s G.B. Pant Hospital.

“The articles and forums on the site have not just helped medical students around the world but have also been widely discussed by the medical community in the UK in the context of racism faced by doctors from ethnic minorities and the difficulties faced by foreign medical graduates in the country. Our forums have also been a great help to Plabbers, the huge community of doctors who reach the UK to do the PLAB 2 exam. They usually live in the London locality of Eastham in very adverse conditions. This has become a hub for them because of the mushrooming coaching classes and cheap rented apartments which are available,’’ adds Vidyarthi. "
