Govt Allows Foreign Medical Graduates from Ukraine to Complete Course, Mandates 2-Year Internship
Recognizing the predicament, the NMC has granted this special provision exclusively to Indian students in the final year of their undergraduate medicine programmes and obtained course/degree completion certificates before June 30, 2022. These students now have the chance to sit for the FMG examination, contingent upon which they will need to undertake a mandatory two-year Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) to secure registration.

Amidst the turmoil caused by the conflict in Ukraine, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has unveiled a pioneering initiative aimed at supporting Indian students affected by the war. In a recent communication to the Rajya Sabha, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare disclosed an innovative opportunity extended by the NMC, enabling these students to complete their disrupted medical courses in alternative countries.

Recent data shared by Pawar sheds light on the current landscape: 2,510 students are involved in offline studies in Ukraine, while 2,952 have opted for online learning. Furthermore, 242 students have enrolled in programmes in third countries under an academic mobility initiative.



To extend support, the NMC's decision, as outlined in a notice released on November 22, 2023, extends this provision for an additional three months, underscoring the commission's commitment to assisting these affected students.



Meanwhile, reports from the Ministry of External Affairs highlight that 5,715 Indian students have enrolled in Ukrainian universities for the September 2023 semester.



Concurrently, the government has intensified efforts to bolster medical education opportunities within India. The Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS), targeting the elevation of district/referral hospitals into new medical colleges, has ushered in approvals for 157 new medical colleges, with 108 already operational, thereby substantially broadening access to medical education within the nation.
