NMC Releases New Guidelines for Medical Education Unit, Additional Qualification for Faculty Removed

New Delhi : The National Medical Commission (NMC) has offered Revised Guidelines and has amended the criteria and qualifications for the Medical Education Unit. The Revised Guidelines has offered the exemption of additional qualifications such as an Advance Course in Medical Education (ACME) or a Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) fellowship for faculty members until January 31, 2024. 

The notice issued by the NMC on December 27 reads, “As per the NMC guidelines, in a medical college, a minimum of 4 MEU resource faculty must have additional qualifications like ACME, FAIMER, or equivalent. A large number of medical colleges however are not fulfilling this requirement. As a result, the RBCW training of faculty is getting affected. It has been decided to grant a limited-period waiver (up to 31 Jan 2024). A revised guideline for the Medical Education Unit (MEU) is circulated herewith.”
