Studying Abroad is a roller coaster ride sometimes. There are many things which one needs to take into consideration while applying for any course in a foreign university.
Whether the course is valid in India is the most important question for Indian students.
Recently the National Medical Commission has released a new Gazette of the new rules and regulations about studying MBBS Abroad. This gazette has mentioned some changes and restrictions about the medical degree (MBBS) from any university.
What does one need to do to get a medical degree that will be valid in India?
Is your medical degree valid in India?
Let's see about the new rule that has been released earlier by NMC about studying MBBS Abroad.
I will focus on all the important points and explain them very well here.
The Gazette of India which was released on 18th November 2021, focuses on some important points:
The Gazette mainly focuses and clearly mentions the course duration of the MBBS/MD course from any university.
It says that the MBBS degree will not be valid unless it has the course duration of 54 months. It must be noted that this 54-month duration does not include an internship.
The Gazette explains about the internship, minimum duration, and maximum duration of MBBS Abroad.

This means that the medical degree from other medium like Ukrainian, Russian, Polish or any other medium of teaching, would not be valid in India.
Some of the foreign universities offers MBBS in their local language medium. So students should take in consideration that while going for MBBS Abroad, they must take admission to English medium only.
The NMC further mentioned in the Gazette that even after completing the valid duration of the MBBS course from a foreign university/institute the students would be eligible to practice in India only when:
Sometimes the students choose to do the first year of their medical degree from one institute and then shifts to another institute for their further duration.
There are some other cases like MBBS in the Philippines where students choose to do the BS course from India and go to the Philippines only for the MD course. The National Medical Commission has clearly abandoned that process now.
According to this Gazette, the whole degree should be completed from one institute only. The course completed from different institutes would not be valid.
The Gazette of India for MBBS Abroad clearly states that the students should have covered the following subjects in their theory and/or internship. The clinical subjects mentioned below should be in their syllabus and the degree would be valid in India only if the mentioned subjects are covered in their curriculum.
The clinical subjects including but not limited to:
Apart from the above mentioned points, there is one main point that should be taken in consideration. This point states whether this new rule is applicable to you or not. Whether your current degree is valid in India or not. If your admission is already done and you are pursuing an MD course already, would you be able to practice in India?
Well, there is no need to be afraid for those students who are already (before 18th November 2021) taking education in some foreign universities.
So the new Gazette mentioned many new rules about studying MBBS Abroad. Yet students need not worry about it. The new students need to take this rule in mind and choose their university and country for an MBBS degree wisely.
Clearly, the Gazette only specifies the rules about practising medicine in India.
So the students still have other options like practising in foreign countries. One can pass the screening test of the respective country ex. USMLE for the USA and start practising their medicine there.
