MEDICAL REGISTRATION EXAMINATION REGULATIONS
- Section 22 (1) (ca) of the Medical Council Act has been amended to provide for an examination for persons wishing to be registered as a general practitioner.
- The examination will determine whether the applicant possesses adequate professional knowledge. For this purpose, the Medical Council through the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life has solicited the help of the National Board of Examinations (NBE) of New Delhi (India). The NBE is concerned with the setting of the question paper and marking the answer booklets while the Mauritius Examination Syndicate is involved in conducting the examination. The Council has the task of scrutinizing all applications for registration and publishing the result of the examination on its website.
- Only successful candidates are given registration as general practitioner.
- It is to be noted that according to the Medical Council (Exemption from Examination) (Amendment No 2) Regulations 2014, “a person shall be exempted from undergoing the examination referred to in section 22(1) (ca) of the Act where-
- He establishes to the satisfaction of the Council that he is duly registered as a general practitioner with the regulatory body of the country where he was practicing medicine immediately before he applies for registration in Mauritius and he has practiced as a general practitioner for a minimum period of 3 years in that country, or
- The Council is satisfied that, before 31 December 2013, he was registered as a pre-registration trainee by any regulatory body”.
