National Medical Commission: Compulsory rotatory medical internships

National Medical Commission

The National Medical Commission (NMC) today issued guidelines regarding the validity of compulsory rotatory medical internships (CRMIs). 

The official notice states that on or before October 21, 2022, all foreign medical graduates who have completed or begun their required rotatory internships in medical colleges, institutes, or hospitals that have been approved by the previous Medical Council of India (MCI) will be considered valid. This will be considered a one-time measure, though

In addition, the Commission added that any internship that began in non-teaching hospitals after October 21, 2022, will be deemed “invalid.”.

According to the NMC’s official notice, this decision was made after the Commission received “various requests and representations.”

Many medical students protested the NMC’s decision on CRMIs in November of last year, claiming that it would force students who received their UG course completion certificates on or before June 30, 2022, to complete two years of internship rather than the customary one. According to the NMC, this would have compensated for the loss of clinical training brought on by the Covid pandemic.
