NMC offers some assistance to international MBBS students


The National Medical Commission (NMC) on Friday granted relaxation to MBBS students from Telangana and other regions of the country who had to discontinue their medical studies and leave foreign countries due to the Covid pandemic and the Ukraine-Russia war, allowing them to appear for the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE), the licensure examination that, if passed, will allow such students to register in India and practise their profession.


The one-time exemption is anticipated to provide relief to a sizable group of Telangana students who returned from China and other European nations amid the Covidian outbreak and from Ukraine following Russia’s invasion of that nation.


When the Covid epidemic first appeared, there were about 28,000 Indian students studying for the MBBS at various Chinese colleges, with roughly 7000 of them coming from the two Telugu-speaking states.


They were forced to return to India due to pandemic-related constraints, but they were unable to do so due to visa limitations. As a result, many of them completed their MBBS programmes online, which the NMC does not recognise.


The Russian war forced almost 700 Telangana students who were enrolled in MBBS programmes in Ukraine to return. The NMC relaxation is anticipated to help most of them.


The NMC made it clear in its notice that when MBBS students from foreign universities pass the FMGE examination, they would nevertheless be required to do a two-year Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI).


The two-year CRMI requirement will allow MBBS students from overseas universities to make up for the clinical training they were unable to physically attend throughout their undergraduate medical education at those institutions.


These students will be able to become familiar with the medical practise environment in India thanks to the CMRI programme. Only after passing the CMRI will foreign medical graduates be qualified for registration, according to NMC.


Additionally, the NMC has made it plain that the relaxation provided to international medical students is a one-time gesture and would not be taken into consideration going forward.
