What are the draft guidelines for medical registration proposed by NMC?

By: admin | 08 Apr; 2022

The National Medical Commission has released a set of three draft regulations- License to Practice Medicine, 2022; Registration of Additional Qualifications, 2022; and Temporary Registration of Foreign Medical Practitioner to Practice Medicine in India. As per the guidelines. Indian Medical Graduates have to complete their MBBS degree from a recognized college, finish their mandatory 12-month long internship, and pass the yet-to-be-implemented licentiate exam called National Exit Test (NExT) for getting their registration. Foreign medical graduates, on the other hand, have to complete their MBBS-equivalent degree from a medical institute “recognised and listed by the NMC” in other countries, be registerable as a medical practitioner in the said country, complete a 12-month internship in India, and pass the same NExT exam.
