Through a recent notice, the newly constituted apex medical regulator National Medical Commission (NMC) has directed all the concerned authorities to conduct the Supplementary Examination of MBBS course as soon as possible.

This comes in pursuance of the relaxation given by the erstwhile Medical Council of India (MCI) in the provision of Appointment of External Examiners, schedule and conduct of Examination in Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997 (GMER) because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now with the academic activities having commenced in many of the institutions along with the reopening of medical colleges, the NMC has now given its direction to the concerned authorities on the conduction of the said exams so the students can move ahead with the training which has already delayed due to the COVID precedence and lockdown. The advisory issued to this aforementioned effect signed under the authority of NMC Secretary Dr RK Vats, clearly states:

In continuation of the Advisory bearing No. MCI-34(41)(Gen.)-Med./2020/ 113080 dated 04.08.2020 issued by BOG/MCI wherein relaxation in the provision of Appointment of External Examiners, schedule and conduct of Examination in Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997 (GMER) in view of the COVID-19 pandemic were permitted, it is further advised by the National Medical Commission that all pending professional supplementary examinations of MBBS course be conducted as early as possible so that the students can progress to the next phase of their training.
