Tamil Nadu docs will have to renew licenses every five years
Pushpa Narayan, TNN | Aug 31, 2012, 08.54AM IST
CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu State Medical Council has drawn up self-regulation plans to improve the way medicine is practised in the state, making it mandatory for doctors to renew their licences every five years. By 2017, all doctors registered with the council - public and private - will have to prove that they attended at least 30 hours of continuing medical education (CME).
Those failing to prove that their skills are up-to-date will be prevented from practising medicine, TNmedicalcouncil president Dr K Prakasam said.
The existing ways of regulating the profession are no longer good enough, he said. Doctors are expected to be upto-date and more accountable. "No doctor can stop studying after college. Now, we are ensuring they do at least minimum specified hours. Our credit system will encourage doctors to present papers and publish research in reputed medical journals but discourage events organized to promote a particular drug or equipment," he said.
Senior doctors welcomed the decision . Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Medical University vice-chancellor Dr Mayil Vahanan Natarajan said the university had made it mandatory for PG students to get credit scores. "It will be good to extend it to practising doctors. The system exists in most countries," he said.
As instructed by the Hon’ble Court, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has proposed the Course Curriculum of the proposed Bachelor’s Degree Course on Community Health - B.Sc. (Community Health)
