PMDC amends rules: 60pc in FSc must for doctors

PMDC amends rules: 60pc in FSc must for doctors to start practicing
Islamabad, June 23, 2008: In a big move towards creating a better qualified medical/dental workforce at home, Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) is currently amending rules to set minimum standards for practicing medicine, surgery or dentistry in Pakistan.

Under the new rules, a MBBS or BDS degree holder with less than 60 percent marks in FSc (pre-medical) will be denied practicing in Pakistan, PMDC officials have said.

Currently, anyone with less than 60 percent marks in FSc can get admission in a local or foreign private medical or dental college after paying heavy fees. Students of registered Pakistani institutes get themselves enrolled with the PMDC before starting practicing, while graduates from foreign medical or dental colleges have to pass a National Education Board (NEB) examination for this purpose.

To improve quality, the PMDC had decided to make it binding on all Pakistani students to score at least 60 percent marks in FSc for starting practicing as doctors at home, they said.

This condition would be applied on those FSc students who would pass out in 2008 and afterwards, they said.

"The students, admitted to foreign or local medical/dental colleges after 2007 with less than 60 percent marks in the FSc (pre-medical) or equivalent qualification, will not be allowed to appear in the NEB examination," said a senior PMDC official.

He said some students could not qualify for local medical colleges and obtained medical/dental degrees from abroad. This practice, he said, was gap in the merit system and it should be plugged.

Students from those medical colleges where medium of teaching was not English would have to pass IELTS or TOEFL examinations with minimum 6.0 band, he said.

The students, he said, would have to pass registration/equivalence examination to get entitlement to a provisional registration by the PMDC.

The registration examination would be conducted twice a year, he said. Under the rules, the candidates, who had acquired standard post graduation qualification such as MRCP, FRCS diplomas or fellowship from American Board would be eligible for registration in Pakistan without NEB examination.

The PMDC had planned to offer Rs 25,000 per examination to chief coordinator of the programme, Rs 20,000 to the co-ordinator and Rs 15,000 to controller of examination while professors would get Rs 2,500 per day, associate professors Rs 2,000, assistant professor Rs 1,700, postgraduate trainees Rs 1,000 and PMDC staff would get 50 percent of their basic pay.

"To Dr.Awal khan & Dr.iqbal,,,, regarding foreign medical education, pmdc made some new rules which you can find on the pmdc web by the name of (pmdc regulation 2007).it is stated that after 2007,every student should ask pmdc for the fermition to go abroad for MBBS or master degree. so if u wanna do master,need pmdc fermition.about IELETS, there is no such regulation for FMG, up to now."

"Dear BURAQ MIR! the rule about 60%marks in fsc published on pmdc web , in july 2007. so there is alittlebit confusion about the time of implementaion of this rule. as i know the rule is from july onward. my suggetion will be that its better to improve your fsc marks rather than any other option. you have the apportunity if you still have the chance of improvment in fsc. you can also contact pmdc or call to know about the exact matter."
