Is an MBBS degree from Russia valid in India? I want to pursue my MBBS from a Russian university.

Yes, MBBS degree of Russia is totally valid in India. World Health organization (WHO) and National Medical Council (NMC) recognized Russian Universities. There is 2 types of universities : 1st Bilingual university, which provide English + Russian Medium course and 2nd Full English Medium course, where all 6 years will be in English medium.

According to NMC, MBBS course must be in English Medium only. So if your are planning to go Russia, make sure to find English medium university. After completing an MBBS in Russia, you will need to pass the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE) or the National Exit Test (NEXT).

If you pass NExT exam, you will be eligible to apply license and will be able to practice in India as a Doctor.

Here are some Medical universities, which is approved by WHO, NMC and providing English Medium Course :

  • I.M. Sechonov First Moscow State Medical University
  • Bashkir State Medical University
  • Kazan Federal University
  • Orel State university
  • Kursk State Medical University

Dreaming MBBS from Russia is very good option. You will find good and experienced university with great clinical exposure.
