Med students from abroad to do internship in new colleges


The National Medical Commission (NMC) has instructed states to allocate seats to Indian medical students whose study abroad has been interrupted due to their internship in the country, but only in newly developed medical colleges and which have yet to be recognized by the commission.

About 60,000 medical students returned to India from China, Russia, Ukraine and Georgia during their academic sessions because of the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

Last November, NMC published the Compulsory Rotatory Medical Internship Regulations (CRMI) 2021 and Foreign Medical Graduate Licentiate (FMGL) Regulations 2021, enabling compulsory internship for foreign medical students in India for at least one year after passing FMG exams to be approved to practice medicine in India.

“To implement these regulations, states’ medical boards are required to allocate seats to FMGs, who have qualified FMG exams, only in medical colleges. Foreign medical graduates can be placed first in the colleges that have recently opened and are yet to be accredited,” said an official statement from Shambhu Sharan Kumar, director of UGMEB. “A state-by-state list of recognized or approved medical colleges has been shared by the commission with the medical councils of the state.”
