New Delhi: National Medical Commission (NMC) has allowed students who return to India after the Russia-Ukraine war to transfer to colleges in countries. Earlier, students studying medicine in a foreign country were not allowed to shift their country of study mid-course. Considering the special circumstances, the NMC in its recent notice said, “NMC conveys its no-objection for academic mobility program in respect of Indian medical students who are studying in Ukraine provided that other criteria of Screening Test Regulations 2002 are fulfilled."

The earlier rule stated, “The entire course, training, and internship or clerkship shall be done in the same foreign medical institution throughout the course of study and no part of training/internship shall be done from other institutes."

“It is informed that the mobility program offered by Ukraine has been considered in the Commission in consultation with the Ministry of External Affairs, wherein it was intimated that the academic mobility program is a temporary relocation to other universities in different countries globally. However, the degree will be awarded by the parent Ukrainian University," NMC said in its latest order.

Even though universities in Ukraine have started to operate, students are not going to the varsities due to geopolitical conditions. Most of the students are attending classes online, however, NMC only recognizes theory classes online and a considerable portion of medical education is practical education. Thus, Ukraine-returned students are looking for alternative solutions.
