NMC issues Circular on Composition of Medical Education Unit and Curriculum Committee


The National Medical Commission (NMC) has issued a Circular on Composition of Medical Education Unit (MEU) and Curriculum Committee. This circular was issued on 10th August, 2023.

NMC has observed that many medical colleges keep the same faculty in their Medical Education Unit and Curriculum Committee. This violates the matter and purpose of faculty development programmes.

Hence the NMC is informing all colleges/ institutes/ nodal and regional centres:

  • the curriculum committee must ensure implementation and monitoring of the curriculum at their colleges, conduct of CISP, time table scheduling, etc.
  • the Medical Education Unit should focus on training support, conduct of BCME and other in-house training of faculty.
  • the dean/ principal and convener/ MEU coordinator shall be the only common member in both MEU and CC.
  • all medical colleges must strictly follow guidelines on constitution of MEU and CC.
  • until rectification as per the above, no permissions for BCME/ CISP III shall be issued by academic cell, UGMEB. However all medical colleges established from 2019 onwards are exempted from this requirement until 31st July, 2023. Such colleges are requested to make their MEU and CC as per the guidelines at the earliest.
  • upto 25% of training sessions of BCME and CISP III may be taken by faculty from MEU and CC mutually. This is an interim measure till 31st January, 2024.
