Mid-level courses are to be conducted by 11 nodal centres that MCI has identified in different regions of the country and the apical course to be conducted by the apical centre in the medical council itself.

The Council has also undertaken the exercise of rationalization of the minimum requirements for starting of medical colleges and also their equitable geographical location, so that the aspirations of all the parts of the country are equitable met.
