NEET Bulletin(New Delhi, Desk): More than 3000 Medical students are stuck and in fear over whether they will be awarded MBBS degree or not as they cannot go back to China to complete their internship because of Corona virus. Students have completed only 6 months internship and some are yet to complete one year internship. Some students were on vacation and some were recently airlifted form Wuhan are now in Quarantine. According to Medical Council of India (MCI) norms internship must be completed without break.
Students are now approaching their universities and consultants to appeal the centre to allow them to complete their internships. “The best way forward for medical students from China is to give NEET exam, which will be held in June and December. In this way, they can make up for the lost time.” said Dr T Narsinga Reddy, senior doctor. With a new Board of Governors to look into the issues of MCI, parents and consultants are planning to approach them to grant relief for internship.
