Pakistan medical commission has announced to launch the online system to facilitate medical graduates and practitioners. According to the new reforms, the candidates can submit the online application form for the licenses, renewals, and other services. As per the statement issued by the PMC official the candidates can avail the various services without visiting the commission office. The online system will be launched in March 2021 and the licensed practitioners have to create the digital profile by fulfilling the mentioned requirements. Upon the biometric verification, the online profile will be updated with the automated verification process. Through this process, the license will be immediately issued to the practitioners and moreover, it will secure the data as well as the identity of the candidates.
Policy For Licensed Doctors
The Pakistan medical commission has also approved the policy for the doctors who were not practicing or were based outside Pakistan to notify the commission regarding their practicing status. Furthermore, the committee has also approved the decision of the disciplinary committee regarding the fines, invalid licenses, and suspending licenses on account of negligence. The major and the minor penalties will also be imposed to warn the practitioners in the case of violation of the code of ethics. The council has also taken the notice of the foreign medical graduates so that they can start their house job in Pakistan.
As per the policy, the students who had graduated before January 2021 from the foreign college will be processed for licensing with the requirements and they have to show the license eligibility of the country from which they are graduated, or otherwise they have to qualify NLE. After qualifying for the NLE they will be given the provisional license and they can complete the house job in Pakistan and afterward they would be granted the full license. In case the candidate fails to quality NLE the license of the candidates will be suspended until they qualify for the test.
