The Rajasthan Medical Council (RMC) has cancelled the internships of three medical graduates after discovering that their documents were fake. The graduates, who held degrees from foreign institutions, had applied for internships in Rajasthan through an online application process.

The RMC had invited applications from medical graduates who had obtained their degrees in other countries. As part of the application process, a thorough verification of the submitted documents was conducted in May. During this verification process, it was found that the documents provided by three graduates were fraudulent.

The graduates affected by this decision are Raj Kumar Meena, Ankur Kumar, and Himanshu Chauhan. The RMC, adhering to its strict guidelines, emphasized that passing the screening test conducted by the National Board of Examinations is mandatory for all foreign medical graduates who wish to undertake internships in India. This screening test ensures that graduates meet the necessary standards and qualifications required to practice medicine in the country.

The discovery of these fraudulent documents has raised concerns about the verification processes in place for foreign medical graduates.

Dr. Rajesh Kumar Sharma, the RMC registrar, confirmed the cancellation of the internships for the three individuals. The council's decision underscores its commitment to maintaining the integrity and quality of medical education and practice in Rajasthan. Ensuring that only qualified and properly certified individuals are allowed to practice medicine is crucial for the safety and well-being of patients.

The discovery of these fraudulent documents has raised concerns about the verification processes in place for foreign medical graduates. It highlights the importance of rigorous checks and balances to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. The RMC's swift action in canceling the internships demonstrates its dedication to upholding high standards in the medical profession.

The RMC's decision sends a clear message that fraudulent activities will not be tolerated and that strict action will be taken against those who attempt to bypass the established procedures and guidelines. The issue of verifying the credentials of foreign medical graduates is not new, but it remains a critical concern for medical councils and regulatory bodies.
