Medical PG Degrees from Russia will be now recognized in India by MCI (Medical Council of India)!
As for now, medical PG degrees from only 5 English speaking countries (USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) are valid in India. While the medical PG program from countries like Ukraine and Russia were never recognized in India.
Recently, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has come to a decision to allow the Post Grads from Russia to practice in India after clearing the DNB Exam (Diplomate of National Board). And as a result, these specialist doctors would be permitted to practice in both government and private hospitals in India.
By taking this initiative, India ensures a future where there will be many specialist doctors. The government has further instructed the medical education board of India to implement more reforms so as to ensure that only the highly trained doctors get the license to practice in India.
