Do you know about any European doctors in India who are not of Indian origin?

I experience some difficulties with the registration at the Medical Council of India and would like to get in touch with someone who went through it and succeeded.

And another question: one of the requirements to get an Indian employment visa is an annual salary of more than 25.000 USD when in India. I found an NGO interested in employing me but for a less lower amount of money. Dou know if it is possible to get an employment visa with a lower income?

I have already contacted a few European doctors engaged in charitable activities in India: non of them has a registration at the Medical Council of India, most of them travel on tourist visas. In fact that is illegal.

I think this rule no more exists, it has been scrapped.... wait for someone more informed to confirm this though.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

There are always a hand-full of foreign doctors working with the Tibetan Hospital in McLeod Ganj , when I was forced to avail myself of there services there were 2 germans and a swiss doctor I believe. The hospital is called Delek Hospital - ph# is 01892222053 (ph # is from the lonely planet - sorry if it is not correct). Perhaps you could ring them and inquire?

As far as I know, they don't register with the Indian Medical Council.

Exactly, that's the point. They told me, I could get a registration, but only for the purpose of training, teaching, research or charitable work.

So I still look for informations about any foreign doctors working in India. Are there any foreign doctors working in India?

To legally work in India you need to have your basic medical degree recognised by MCI. I think list of recognised medical qualifications is given in schedule II of MCI constitution. Just check out MCI website if they have online version of constitution. But I think only qualifications from common wealth and Nepal are recognised. Rest all need a licensing exam

Dear DrKK,
The Medical Council of India issues Temporary Registration for Foreign nationals with foreign degrees to work as Doctors for a very limited period of time.

The Application No is: MCI-07 - Application for Foreigners for Temporary Permission u/s 14(1) to foreign national holding Non-schedule Medical Qualification.

It can be downloaded from here (official MCI website): MCI Website - Application Forms

Cheers.

Thank you Laxmin!

Do you have an idea, how to get a permanent registration? The temporary registration is only for the purpose of training, teaching, research or charitable work as the mentioned MCI-07 form states.

Is there any chance to get a normal registration or at least a registration allowing setting up a private practice or get a paid employment in a private hospital?

Hi,
I am a french doctor, living in India now, working at a charitable trust ( no salary, as the minimum salary required otherwise for the employment visa was too high to find any job). I am also trying to register at the National Council of India. Could you tell me if you could finally get it done for you ? It doesnt seem to be too difficult, seeing the form number 7 on their website. But do you have any idea if it is possible then to work with a salary, or to have my own clinic ? Are you in India at the moment ? Thanks in advance ...

I didn't manage to get a permanent registration. It would be no problem to get the registration through the form #07, but it would not allow to work in the curative field with a salary nor to set up my own clinic. I am in Europe now.

What I learned from my contacts with the MCI: India is the only country in the world, which gives no possibility to obtain a full registration for foreign doctors. In many countries it is very complicated, but at least it is possible. In India it is not possible at all.

emailneeraj:
Can you tell me more about the MCI exam for licensing of US physicians? Is it held every year? Where? I do not have an American license and I am not of Indian origin, would they still allow me to participate?
