The list of required competencies for the Indian Medical Graduate (IMG) along with suggested teaching/learning methods and topics for integration have been notified by Medical Council of India. Also, the desired level of proficiency for various competencies has been defined with emphasis on the need to certify some of them. The corresponding Graduate Medical Education Regulations with details of curricular time assignment for various disciplines, scheduling and details of the evaluation process are still to be released and is expected shortly. With implementation fixed for the academic year 2019-20, it is necessary for all faculty to be apprised of the details of the changes being sought to be brought about. This paper will focus on details of the new curriculum, its merits compared to the previous version and some areas of concern which may require attention and rectification later on. One possible strategy for preparing and implementing the curriculum by August, 2019 will be suggested.
