PMC to improve healthcare training standards


Islamabad: The Medical Commission of Pakistan strives to improve health care education through the promotion of quality medical and dental education in Pakistan.

PMC, as the health care regulator, sets benchmarks in line with global best practices to ensure quality health care for every citizen of the nation. PMC changed the old, outdated and orthodox mode of the system that usually hampered regular procedures, causing difficulties for students, doctors and other stakeholders, and implemented a digital system that made it easier to track and satisfy customers. current needs.

The Medical Commission of Pakistan is determined to facilitate all stakeholders for the overall benefit of the nation. In order to issue licenses to interested overseas graduates, PMC has twice held the National Licensing Examination.

The aim of conducting NLE for foreign graduates is also determined and to examine their academic and practical abilities before issuing the license to them. PMC not only works to improve the quality of healthcare standards, but also works on patients’ rights.

A competent doctor can treat a patient well. In these two NLE exams for foreign graduates, nearly 2,344 students appeared, and among these, only 424 students were able to pass the NLE exam. The low pass rate is simply due to the poor selection of medical/dental colleges by students seeking cheap foreign education influenced by informal agents who are directly responsible for jeopardizing their careers school for the money, and going to un-verified, substandard educational institutions. Based on the results of the NLE, PMC investigated and learned that there are a number of foreign medical and dental colleges that offer courses and programs with minimum necessary provisions followed by marginal teaching up to ‘to brand and only focusing on theory instead of theory and clinical experience, because practical clinical experience also has an important and essential value.

Due to limited resources, hospitals, language barriers, and the limited number of patients and beds, students typically graduate without home employment or hands-on clinical experience, which is a major reason for the low percentage of foreign graduates in the NLE exams. All overseas graduates who complete their respective degrees with home-based jobs/hands-on clinical experience pass the NLE exams quite easily.

PMC works tirelessly to facilitate international graduates and has designed multiple pathways for them so that they don’t face any hassle. On average, 25-30,000 students per year are willing to continue their studies in foreign medical and dental colleges, all students are kindly requested to secure admissions in foreign institutes/countries verified by PMC and to refrain from being evaded by informal agents. The Medical Commission of Pakistan is an independent regulatory body that works transparently to improve healthcare delivery and service standards in Pakistan.
