Ukraine-returned Indian medical students given one-time option to clear MBBS exam

Ukraine-returned Indian medical students given one-time option to clear MBBS exam

Indian medical students who had returned from war-hit Ukraine have been given a one-time option to clear the MBBS final exams without enrolling in any existing medical colleges.

The Centre has informed Supreme Court that students who returned to India from Ukraine will be given a single opportunity to clear the MBBS final exams -- both Part I and Part II exams (both theory and practical), without enrolling in any existing medical colleges. Around 18,000 students had come back to India from war-hit Ukraine with many looking for ways to complete their medical degree in their own country.

According to the Centre, after clearing these two examinations, students will have to complete two years of compulsory rotatory internship, with the first year being free and the second year being paid, as decided by the National Medical Commission (NMC) for previous cases.

The decision was made by a committee set up by the Centre to address the concerns of these students. The committee has emphasised that this will be strictly a one-time option and will not become a basis for similar decisions in the future. The scheme shall be applicable to present matters only.
