India apprises China of new norms for Indian medical students

India has apprised China of the recent stringent regulations issued by the National Medical Commission (NMC) for Indian students studying in Chinese medical colleges to obtain permission to practice back home and asked authorities here to ensure that the students are qualified to comply with the new rules.

In September, the Indian Embassy in Beijing issued a detailed advisory for prospective Indian students wanting to study medicine in China cautioning them of pitfalls, including poor pass percentage, mandatory learning of Putonghua, and stringent norms to qualify to practice in India.

After over two years of covid visa restrictions, China recently started issuing visas to a select number of students to return.

The Chinese medical colleges, meanwhile, began enrolment for new students from India and abroad.
