There is good news for the students who returned to India after the Ukraine war. These students will also now get a chance to pursue MBBS degree in India. However, this chance will be available only once. The central government made an announcement regarding this on Tuesday. It said medical students who have returned from Ukraine will be given a chance to clear the MBBS exam in the country.
“Students will be given one last chance to clear MBBS Part 1 and Part 2 without enrolling in any of the existing medical colleges,” the government informed the Supreme Court. The Center said that the theory exams would be based on the syllabus of the Indian MBBS exam and the practicals would be conducted in some designated government colleges.
The Center said, “Students returning to India from Ukraine will be given only one chance to clear the MBBS final, Part I and Part II examinations (both theory and practical) without enrolling in any of the existing medical colleges. After passing out, the students will have to complete a compulsory rotatory internship of 2 years, out of which the first year will be free and the second year will be paid as decided by NMC in previous cases.”
The Center told the apex court that the committee constituted in the matter has emphasized that this option shall be strictly exercised only and once only and in future this option shall not be invoked. With this, after this reply of the Central Government, the Supreme Court has settled the matter. Let us tell you that in March last year, a petition was filed in the Supreme Court to give admission to medical students who had returned from Ukraine in medical colleges of India.
