Foreign medical graduates are no longer required to complete another internship in India: High Court of Kerala
The High Court of Kerala stated that the requirement of such medical graduates to undergo CRRI before claiming permanent registration is inconsistent with the requirements of the IMC Act and is therefore invalid and unenforceable.
The Kerala High Court has ruled that a medical graduate from a foreign university who has completed a one-year internship abroad does not need to complete another internship in Kerala to be registered as a doctor.
Justice PB Suresh Kumar issued the decision after hearing three petitions (WP-C No. 2992/2021 and others) filed by Sadhiya Siyad of Thiruvananthapuram via advocating Santhosh Mathew.
