New Rules for Doctors by MCI

According to new rules that will be announced by the Medical Council of India (MCI) on 5th April, doctors in India might be sent back to lecture halls to study again soon.

New Rule for Doctors by MCI
The MCI has planned to make it compulsory for all doctors to attend 30 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) after every five years, failing which, the council might suspend their registration to practice medicine. The MCI will announce the maiden national guidelines on CME Credit Hours at the council's ethical committee meeting. Papers published in "indexed national/ international" medical journals will allow the authors and co-authors to CME Credit Hours. Also, doctors who are pursuing postgraduate courses such as diploma, MD, MS, DNB and DM from reputed/ recognized institutions in India will receive four credit hours per year for the duration of their course. Additional credit hours will be awarded to the doctors for participating in departmental and institutional activities such as mortality conferences, journal club meetings, etc.
The council's new rules also say that any medical associations or organizations that are caught issuing fake certificates to doctors that claim they had attended conferences will be barred. Doctors will also be allowed to attend international conferences and will be issued CME Credit Hours only after they have submitted attendance proof.
A CME organized by a medical drug or equipment company for the promotion of its product will not be considered by the council. Also, CMEs organized by individual nursing homes, hospitals etc. for the purpose of marketing will not be given any credit.
