Well, in that case, migration needs to take place. Talking about migration, it is a procedure to seek admission from one university to another university during the course time. Today, we will talk about how MBBS students can seek migration if they wish to during their MBBS years.
So, let’s focus on today’s blog topic- “Medical college transfer rules during MBBS program”
Now, there are certain question, that MBBS pursuing who is looking to migrate from one university to another in the middle of their MBBS program, experiences-
Is it possible for a medical student to change his or her medical college during the MBBS program?
Absolutely yes! As per the law and the rules, a medical aspirant can change his/her medical college during the MBBS program, but of course, there are some rules based on which a student is allowed the migration from one university to another. The National Medical Commission (NMC), formerly, MCI (Medical Commission of India) have framed certain migration application and their rules which a student need to go through if he or she is looking for migration. To check migration rules in between the MBBS program, student needs to check the information on the official website of the NMC.
According to the migration rule framed by the NMC (National Medical Commission)- Migration of medical aspirants from one medical college to another medical college during the MBBS program can only be granted on any genuine ground. And this is also possible, only if there is any seat available in the desired medical college where the applicant is looking to migrate. Apart from this, the application should be fulfilling all the other requirements laid down in the regulations in order to change the college during the MBBS program. Migration would be restricted to 5% of the sanctioned intake of the college during the MBBS year. As per the rule, it is also mentioned that migration will not be permitted to the student in any circumstances from one medical college to another located within the same city.
Is it possible to change the college just after the competition of the last date of admission in the same session of the MBBS program?
For example, if a student gets admission in a stray vacancy round of counseling in any of the colleges in 2021 of the MBBS program and the last date of admission is August 31, 2022, then he or she changes his/her college just after 04 months of the MBBS program like in the month of in January 2022?
