Good news for final year medical students who had returned from Ukraine and China

New Delhi : The National Medical Commission has told the Supreme Court that final year medical students who returned to India due to Covid and Russia-Ukraine war and got degrees on a date to be notified will be permitted for the Foreign Medical Graduate (FMG) exam.

In an affidavit filed in Supreme Court, the National Medical Commission (NMC) said upon qualifying the FMG exam, such foreign medical graduates will be required to undergo a Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) for two years instead of the existing one-year norm. The foreign medical graduates will be eligible to get registration only after completing the CRMI for two years. The internship period has been doubled to make up for the clinical training which could not be physically attended by the foreign medical graduates during their course in the institutes abroad and to familiarise them with the practice of medicine under Indian conditions, the NMC affidavit said.
