Internship at TNMC & BYL Nair Ch. Hospital


  • An Intern is posted in all the clinical departments of the hospital on a rotation basis. This gives him the basic clinical experience in all the disciplines of medicine and enables him to work as a General Physician.
  • The intern is also given a monthly stipend. Completion of internship is a necessary pre-requisite for award of the degree, license to practice medicine and for postgraduate studies or higher specialty training.
  • On passing the final MBBS examination at the end of 41/2 years, a medical student is first awarded a Provisional registration certificate by the Medical Council of India (MCI) or the State medical council (MMC) and he can start the internship. The Permanent registration certificate along with (i.e., the license to practice) and the final Medical degree (i.e., the MBBS degree) is given only after obtaining a internship completion certificate endorsing the successful and satisfactory completion of the CRRI.


  • The Interns are entrusted with clinical responsibilities under the supervision of a Medical teacher.
