Till the year 2008, post- graduation from nowhere in the world was recognized by the Medical Council of India for the purpose of registration as an additional qualification in the register maintained by the Medical Council of India. In the year 2008, the MCI started recognizing the additional qualifications from five "English speaking" countries namely, USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand for registration.

Besides the above, post graduate qualifications from nowhere in the world are recognized by the Medical Council of India for registration as an additional qualification. That would mean that the student who finishes his post-graduation from any other place would be unable to work in a government organization as a post -graduate or go into academics. Needless to say, he can work in a private hospital or have his own private practice. However, the Russian degrees are already recognized in the European Union, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Mauritius etc. where the students can work as a post-graduate doctor.

The International Medical Education Directory (IMED) provides an accurate and up-to-date resource of information about international medical schools that are recognized by the appropriate government agency in the countries where the medical schools are located. The agency responsible for this recognition in most countries is the Ministry of Health. Medical schools that are recognized by the appropriate agencies in their respective countries are listed in the International Medical Education Directory. A medical school is listed in IMED after FAIMER receives confirmation from the Ministry of Health or other appropriate agency that the medical school is recognized by the Ministry or other agency. FAIMER also updates the International Medical Education Directory as information about medical schools is received from Ministries of Health or other appropriate agencies.

ECFMG, USA- The doctors qualifying from the WHO recognized medical universities are eligible to appear for USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Exam) in Moscow or other centers around the world.

General Medical Council (UK) - As GMC regards most of the primary medical qualifications listed in the World Health Organisation (WHO) directory of medical schools as acceptable for the purposes of registration with the GMC, the degrees awarded by Russian universities are also recognised. Hence, medical graduates from Russian Universities can appear for the PLAB (the licensing examination for overseas doctors).

European Union: Russia is a signatory to the Bologna convention and even though Russia is not a part of the European Union, the degrees from Russia are considered as equivalent and are valid in the whole European Union. The Bologna Convention is a commitment freely taken by each signatory country to reform its own higher education system or systems in order to create overall convergence at European level.
