The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) recently declared that no foreign trained doctor will be allowed to practise in Nigeria from October, 2012 except showing evidence that he or she could have practised in the country of study.

The Acting Registrar of MDCN,    Dr. Udugbai Ilevbare disclosed this in Abuja yesterday during the induction ceremony of 103 foreign trained medical and dental graduates.

According to him, they must show evidence from the health regulatory bodies in their countries of training that they are registerable and could have worked there.

He also said that such graduates from October 2012  must sit for and pass the MDCN Assessment Examination to be eligible to practise in Nigeria.

He said: “May I at this point inform you all that beginning from October 2012 Assessment Examination, foreign medical graduates must show evidence from the heath regulatory bodies of the countries where they were trained that they are registrable and could have practised in those countries if they had wanted to do so.

”What it means is that if those who trained you as doctors permit or allow you to treat them as patients, we can also allow you to treat us without fear.”
