In a recent notice, released on 30th July 2020 by the Medical Council of India (MCI) the authorities have brought to notice that there have been frequent queries from Foreign Medical graduates regarding the 1-Year mandatory Internships undergone at Foreign Medical Institutes. To clear the dilemmas being faced by the Foreign Medical graduates and their folks the Medical Council of India (MCI) has released the notification of acceptable 12-month Internship from Countries abroad.
