NMC formulates scheme for medical student-returnees from Ukraine and China

  • What: The National Medical Council (NMC) on Friday informed the Supreme Court that medical students who returned during Russia-Ukraine war or during Covid outbreak in China, will be allowed to to appear in Foreign Medical Graduation (FMG) Examination.

  • How: After completing the course, if they clear the FMG examination, they will be required to undergo Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) for two years to make up for the clinical training which they could not physically attend during the undergraduate medical course.

  • Background: On April 29, the SC had ruled that foreign MBBS degree holders can’t be given provisional registration to complete their internship in India without completing the clinical training in physical form. However, given the high number of Indian returnees, it had directed the NMC to develop a scheme for the same.
