Medical And Dental Council of Nigeria Delaying Release of Licenses…

A foreign trained doctor and twitter user, @deenibbles, has called out the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCN, for delays in release of their License to Practice, despite passing the MDCN Licensing examination and being inducted a few month ago. We exclusively reported the procedures for the April 2017 MDCN Licensing examClick HERE in case you need to see the details.

The twitter user, via a series of tweets intimated on the peculiar and tasking nature of securing internship/housemanship placements in a government approved health facility. With this delay, foreign trained doctor left out in the wind and on their own, as most hospitals have commenced another round of internship application process. They are simply missing out on many opportunities.

This post is to call the attention of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria to respond positively to the plight of these foreign trained doctors who sat for the Licensing screening exam in April 2017. MDCN should without further delays release the licenses or at least, render an official reason why there is a delay.

  1. The wait seem so indefinite. We were asked to pay 76,500 in May thinking they will call us for induction soon enough. It’s been two months three weeks since the exam was conducted. Here we are! The most annoying part is that MDCN is not giving reasons for the delay. I hope Nigerians will learn to be accountable.

    1. A concerted effort will surely make them yield… Akinremi, you can share your unique story here on the blog for the right audience to read… MDCN should be reminded of the hardships they are causing.
