Why Indian students choose Russian medical schools
Many Indians choose to study medicine in Russia thanks to the high level of education combined with affordable fees. RIR spoke with a few students and graduates and found out how they manage to learn Russian, and what awaits them when they return to India.
According to a study done by the Higher School of Economics, in the beginning of 2016 there were 237,000 foreign students in Russian colleges, making up five per cent of the student body. Medicine is one of the areas that enjoys a high demand among Indian students.
Russian medical schools enjoy great popularity among countries in the former Soviet Union, as well as in China, India, Vietnam, and a number of other countries. The high level of education and the affordable fees attract foreigners.
Important distinguishing characteristics of Russian medical schools are that foreign students can participate in scientific research, and that during their practice they can communicate with patients. It is true that they need to know Russian well to do this, so they pay particular attention to studying the language.
In India, being a doctor is one of the most prestigious professions. In addition, life in India is a lot less expensive than in Russia. But in order to work as a doctor in India after graduating from a Russian medical school, it is necessary for someone to substantiate his qualifications by passing a special examination. Those who can handle it then get permission to do an internship.

MBBS in pvt colleges will cost you more
It will be applicable from the upcoming academic session scheduled to start from October first week. According to a notification issued by AFRC, first year students in the MBBS course will have to pay Rs 5 to 5.72 lakh as tuition fee; the fee last year was Rs 3.75 to 4 lakh. In premier colleges, a student joining MBBS this year will end up paying at least Rs28 lakh for the four-and-a-half-year course, excluding illegal capitation fee.
According to the notification, the fee will be effective for next three years for the students who will get admission in the 2016 session. The fees may be revised in 2019 again. If a rough assumption is to be made, one will find a jump of around 100% in the last six seven years After considering proposal of private colleges AFRC has announced the revised fees structure for MBBS course students. But, few colleges that turned in private universities are yet to declare the fees they will charge this year. As private universities are regulated by Madhya Pradesh Private University Regulation Commission, the fee hike proposal of few medical colleges that turned into universities this year is yet to come out.
Across the country, private universities have started increasing the tuition fee for MBBS courses this academic year in anticipation that all states will be mandated to take up the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).Sources said that the Supreme Court's order has made it mandatory for medical colleges to admit students solely on merit.
The uneven fee hike has also resulted into anguish as students and students' union leaders on Monday went on to protest against the unfriendly move of AFRC.
MBBS fees double in Tamil Nadu, to now be Rs 2 crore
Private medical colleges and deemed universities in Tamil Nadu have increased fees for MBBS+ after the CBSE released the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) results+ on August 17. The average cost of studying at a premier college is now Rs 1.85 crore-up to Rs 1 crore as tuition fee and Rs 85 lakh as capitation fee. All private medical colleges and deemed universities are now mandated to admit students+ solely on the basis of merit. According to the new rules, students can independently apply to different colleges, but admission will be based on NEET ranks.
Yet, some colleges have discreetly told parents they will have to pay a capitation fee ranging between Rs 40 lakh and Rs 85 lakh. "I argued it should be based on merit, but the college administration says it wasn't specified in the SC order," said a parent, seeking admission for his daughter at three private universities.
While some parents don't argue with the college in the absence of a transparent merit list of admissions, many said they could not afford the annual tuition fee for the five-and-a-half year course. For instance, at Chennai-based SRM Medical College, tuition fee which was Rs 9 lakh in 2014 and Rs 10 lakh in 2015, is Rs 21 lakh this year, including Rs 2 lakh as development fee and Rs 1 lakh as curriculum fee. Tuition fee in other colleges ranges between Rs 12 lakh and Rs 18 lakh. "I have to pay at least Rs 1 crore as tuition fee. The total cost may go up by another Rs 25 lakh," said Selva Ganapathy, whose son secured more than 90 percentile in NEET. but missed a government medical college by 0.25 cut-off points.
Government Plans Exit Exam for all MBBS Students
The Government of India is planning to start an exit examination for MBBS students passing out from government and private medical colleges in India. This exit exam is expected to start from the 2017-18 academic session. This exam will be the first-ever mandatory examination for MBBS graduates which will require them to attain a minimum prescribed percentile in order to practise medicine in India. The medical undergraduates, who will be able to cross the threshold of the marks obtained in the exit test will be given the license to practise.
There is also a possibility of a few changes to the current All-India PG medical entrance examination system. The Health Ministry is planning to convert the existing All-India PG medical entrance exam into a three-in-one test which will include the MBBS exit exam. This move has been initiated by the high-powered committee headed by Niti Aayog vice-chairman Arvind Panagariya. The other members of the committee are PM's additional principal secretary P K Mishra and Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant. However, the panel has also recommended scrapping the Medical Council of India (MCI) and replacing it with a National Medical Commission (NMC). NMC is supposed to have four independent boards to manage under-graduate and post-graduate education, accreditation and rating of colleges, medical register and ethics.
According to an official, NEET has brought to end multiplicity of exams and improvement in the selection process in a free and fair process in medical admissions. After adding the exit exam and setting up of new regulator will be a great contribution in making the system more assessment-based and would provide opportunities to the deserving candidates.
According to the latest report, the commission and the four boards will have eminent doctors and experts who will be selected by a high-powered committee. This process is completely different from the existing MCI, where the members are elected. The election process has become a stumbling block as eminent doctors who could not win elections did not get a chance to participate in the working of MCI.
The main objective of introducing NMC is to regulate the medical education in the country so as to ensure that the quality meets the global standards. There will be around 19-20 members in the NMC with a complete tenure of about five years. The committee will not only include the doctors but it will also have members from other fields such as economics, law and management in a bid to infuse professionalism in the body. According to the officials, the four boards will be given autonomy and they will work on the respective field for which they are formed.
Apart from NMC, a new council is also being proposed naming Medical Advisory Council (MAC). This council will have members from states like an eminent professional such as a professor from a medical college. The members of National Medical Committee (NMC) will also be able to become members of Medical Advisory Council (MAC) and their roles will be advisory.
There are many major steps being taken by the government to place the bill for setting up National Medical Commission as soon as possible hoping that Parliament's approval will be easier because a parliamentary committee had strongly recommended revamping of the MCI, saying it had failed in its role as a regulator which had led to the downfall of India's medical education system.
Introducing such tests and committees will be an exceptional step towards the improvement in the medical education system of India.
