The National Medical Commission (NMC) issued a circular Friday allowing foreign medical graduates with incomplete internships due to situations beyond their control like coronavirus disease (Covid-19) or war in Ukraine to finish the same in India.

The regulatory body, which oversees medical education and medical professionals in India, said that the application for completing the internship may be processed by the state medical councils if the candidates have cleared the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE).

The permission to complete the internships can help the Indian students in various medical colleges in Ukraine who had to abandon their courses due to the Russian aggression.

Thousands of Indian students flew back to their country on planes sent by the central government after they escaped Ukraine amid continued attacks from Russian troops. The NMC also asked the state medical councils to obtain an undertaking from the medical colleges ensuring no fee is charged from the foreign medical graduates (FMGs) for allowing them to finish their internship.
