NEW DELHI: The National Medical Commission (NMC) has extended the internship period for medical (MBBS) students till May 31, 2021. Earlier the internship was scheduled to be completed by March 31, 2021. MBBS students in Karnataka had protested last week and their demands included a deadline for their internship.

The National Medical Commission has now issued guidelines for the completion of the internship post-COVID-19 lock down. The extension of the internship period is to compensate for the lost period of clinical-clerkship, or hands-on training, during the COVID-19 lockdown. It had also instructed medical colleges across the country to take steps for reopening medical colleges before December 1, 2020.

Clinical clerkship is a critical element of the medical internship for acquiring specific hands-on experiences and skills, it is the responsibility of the medical colleges to ensure its timely completion, said the notice issued on Wednesday.

The guidelines for the institutes to hold internship programme say that the institute must release a revised internship schedule for their students, colleges and individual departments must ensure that trainees acquire key clinical competencies and that it is the responsibility of the institutes to see that the interns complete their training satisfactorily.

Post completion of the internship programme, students will be issued internship completion certificates.
