Medical Council of Mauritius & Dental Council of Mauritius

Continuing Professional Development

This is to inform the medical profession and the dental profession that the Economic and Financial Measures (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2012 provided for an amendment at section 30 of the Medical Council Act (numbered as section 30A) and section 29 of the Dental Council Act (numbered as section 29A). These amendments stipulated that “no registered person shall have his name entered on the annual list unless he has followed such Continuing Professional Development courses or training programmes as may be prescribed by the Council”. The effective date of implementation of this measure by each Council was October 01, 2013.

The Economic and Financial Measures (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2013 amended section 30A of the Medical Council Act and section 29A of the Dental Council Act concerning Continuing Professional Development to make these section of the Acts effective by way of proclamation. Same have not been done yet.

As such, it is presently not a legal requirement for the Medical Council of Mauritius and the Dental Council of Mauritius to require medical practitioners and dental practitioners to “earn” credit points by attending/participating in Continuing Professional Development Courses or Training programmes for the purpose of relicensing to practice medicine or dentistry at the beginning of each year.

Nevertheless, the Medical Council and the Dental Council are advising all medical and dental practitioners to continue being involved in CPD programmes/training courses and this for the end benefit to their patients.
