Completing the internship is a requirement for obtaining the MBBS degree and ensures compliance with NMC regulations for medical practice.

Q: What is the NExT exam, and why is it significant for medical graduates?

A: The NExT exam, introduced by NMC, holds great importance for medical graduates. It replaces the FMGE and NEET PG exams, serving as the final qualifying examination for MBBS students. By clearing the NExT exam, graduates obtain licenses to practice medicine in India and access postgraduate medical programs such as MS and MD. This single-window examination streamlines the process for Indian and foreign medical graduates, eliminating the need for separate exams. It aims to standardize evaluation, simplify licensing procedures, and provide a pathway to medical practice and postgraduate education.
