NMC Advises Against Mandatory PG Hostel Stay

| Updated: February 10, 2024 16:21

The National Medical Commission (NMC) has issued directives to all medical colleges, urging them to respect the autonomy of postgraduate medical students regarding accommodation choices.

Under Regulation 5.6 of the Post Graduate Medical Education Regulation (PGMER) 2023, colleges are mandated to provide suitable residential arrangements for postgraduate students. However, the regulation does not enforce compulsory residency in college hostels.

Furthermore, the circular highlights the absence of provisions in the PGMER 2000 requiring mandatory hostel stays for PG medical students provided by the college.

The NMC disclosed receiving numerous complaints from postgraduate students alleging coercion by medical colleges to reside in their hostels, often accompanied by exorbitant charges for facilities. Such practices, the NMC asserts, contravene the provisions outlined in the PGEMR 2023.

In response, the commission has instructed medical colleges to adhere strictly to the stipulations of PGEMR 2023. It has warned of punitive measures, including penalties, seat reductions, and admission suspensions, for colleges found compelling PG students to reside in their hostels against their will.
