The Foreign Medical Students has protested against the National Medical Commission over a 3-year period of internship. The Students group has given a call of NMC Chalo on Monday.

“Why are foreign medical graduates increasingly facing challenges? The National Medical Commission initially required a 2-year internship, but later introduced a 3-year internship. Now there are additional delays of 5-8 months by SMCs to initiate the internship”

The Federation of Resident Doctor Association has also given the support to the calls of FMGs. DR Sarvesh Pandey in a post on X said

The FMG claimed that many state councils are facing a shortage of internship seats. Recently, the DMC and other councils have suggested allowing non-teaching hospitals to accommodate more FMGs, but the @NMC_IND response is still pending, it said.
