NEW DELHI: In a major relief to the students hit by the Russia-Ukraine war and COVID-19, the National Medical Commission (NMC) granted relaxation to medical graduates who have completed their MBBS course from foreign colleges without undergoing clinical training.

“Indian students who were in the final year of their UG medicine course (due to COVID-19, Russia-Ukraine war returned to India) and have completed their studies and granted a certificate of completion of the course on or before June 30 will be permitted to appear in Foreign Medical Graduate Exam,” read NMC public notice.

After qualifying for the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination, these students are required to undergo the Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) exam for a period of 2 years, “Such FMG students are required to undergo compulsory rotating medical CRMI for a period of 2 years to make up for the clinical training which could not be physically attended by them during the undergraduate medicine course in the foreign country,” added the notice.

Earlier, the internship duration was one year but now this will be two years of clinical exposure.
