In good news to the medical students, the Union Health Ministry has proposed to scrap NEET-PG for MD and MS programs. According to the ministry, the MBBS students are henceforth need not required to appear in an entrance examination to get a licence to practice.
According to the official sources, the students are not required to appear in a separate exam post the MBBS to get a licence to practice. This amendment has been incorporated in the revised draft National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, which will soon be sent to the cabinet. The sources have said the changes have been incorporated in the Bill on the directions of the prime minister’s office.
The sources explained “According to the amendments in the fresh NMC Bill, entry into the PG programmes will be on the basis of the results of the National Exit Test. This would be held as a common examination across the country. So the candidates would not have to appear in a separate exam after clearing the MBBS final exam for admission to PG courses.”
