MCI PG Medical Education Regulations, 2000 Notified

October 26, 2000

The Post-Graduate Medical Education Regulations have been revised in tune with the advances taking place in the field of Medical Education and Medical Technology across the world. The Regulations called "Post Graduate Medical Education Regulations, 2000" were notified by the Medical Council of India after getting approval from the Central Government. These Regulations have been revised after a gap of 29 years.

A clause has been added in the new Regulations for allowing non-teaching institutions in Government sector to start PG courses. In the earlier Regulations, the medical colleges recognised for running MBBS courses were only eligible to start the PG courses.

Under the new Regulations, the training period for Super-Speciality courses has been fixed as 3 years after MD/MS. According to old Regulations, it was 2 years after MD/MS. The selection process of Post-Graduate students has also been dileneated. Now, the students can be admitted either on the basis of competitive test conducted by State Governments or other Competent Authority at both State level and Centre level or on the basis of individual performance at MBBS examination. Earlier, the students were selected strictly on the basis of merit judged on the basis of academic record in the Under-Graduate course. Keeping in view the importance of Post-Graduate Medical Education, the Teacher-Student ratio has also been revised. Some of the P.G. courses like Bio-Statistics, Immunology and Allergy, Emergency Medicine etc. were deleted from the earlier regulations as these have already been included in the other related specialities. Some of the courses have been combined into one speciality like Dermatology/STD/Leprosy and Cardio-Thoracic Surgery/Vascular Surgery etc. New specialities like diploma in Marine Medicine and super spcialities like DM Neo-Natology, Neuro-Radiology have been added to list of courses for which PG training can be given.


  1. Achieve your goal

    It is not only convenient to get anything from a math degree to a psychology degree online, but it can also be less costly than traditional college or universities, too. Often, since online schools do not have a physical campus, they do not need to charge as much for attendance. Things like housing, campus building upkeep and cafeteria facilities are not typically offered, and so the cost of attendance is just tuition and books. In addition, most online education programs offer some form of financial aid. And the cost of online degrees earned from an accredited institution can often be offset with federal financial aid as well…………..

  2. The Course on Emergency medicie is vital and it can not be deleted. When foreign countries are running emergency medicine successfully for 4 decades why is this course deleted. Though they have added again this course in july 21st 2009 till date it is not taken its shape because they failed to add the real emergency physicians from India as faculty and forcing the other specialty doctors to run this course. Any delay in developing this course and failing to accept the existing MD Accident & Emergency medicine doctors to accept as EM faculty will be injustice to the field of Emergency medicine and the Nation
