The Union government is yet to make its stand clear on the issue in front of the Supreme Court, as students eagerly wait to decide their future course of action
Indian students who have returned from war-torn Ukraine continue to attend online classes for lack of other options. Uncertainty looms larger over their future, despite Ukraine assuring normal functioning of universities in the western part of the country that is not under siege.
The students are awaiting the submission of final guidelines on the issue by the National Medical Commission (NMC) in the Supreme Court before deciding their future course of action.
The commission had earlier proposed to Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to allow final year students to sit for screening test, after clearing the test these students can complete their two-year internship in India on provisional registration, once they finish their internships students will be provided the permanent license to practice medicine in the country.
Even though Russia is ready to accept students from Ukrainian universities, the students are not really ready to go to the country after witnessing the brutalities the Putin government has carried out in Ukraine.
The National Medical Commission has to act fast, as students juggle with the possibilities of furthering their career aspirations!
