The National Medical Commission (NMC) today warned all Indian medical students against a fake letter circulating on social media about the Avicenna International Medical University of Kyrgyzstan. The official notice is available at the official NMC website — nmc.org.in.

According to the official notification, a fake letter was circulating on social media stating that the Avicenna International Medical University in Kyrgyzstan is recognised by the NMC and Indian students can apply here. However, the NMC has now clarified that the committee had not issued any such letter.

“This is to inform all that a fake letter dated September 16, 2022 stating that Avicenna International Medical University (Bishkek) is recognized by National Medical Commission and Indian students can study here to become a doctor,” the official notification states.

Candidates should remember that the Commission does not approve or recognise any foreign medical institute for award of any medical qualification. However, Foreign Medical Graduates are governed under the provision of National Medical Commission Foreign Medical Graduate Licentiate Regulation 2021.

Meanwhile, a few months ago the committee had issued a warning against India-based Singhania University. The commission had warned students that all admissions made in this said university will be treated as illegal.

“The said institution has in its advertisement published in various newspaper claimed that Hon’ble High Court in the case of IGNOU, has held that there is no provision in the Indian Medical Council Act which authorises and empowers BoG-MCI to grant permission or recognition to IGNOU to enable it to take admission and impart education in MBBS and other medical courses. The said institution mischievously claims that it is covered by a judgment of the High Court without referring to the cause title and the Court that has pronounced it,” the NMC had stated.
