Medical and Dental Practitioners are hereby referred to the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria’s announcement that appeared in the Guardian and the Daily Trust of 29th February 2016 and are reminded that annual practising fees for MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS AND DENTAL SURGEONS had been reviewed as follows:
- Practitioners of less than 10 years post- graduation N10,000.00 (Ten thousand naira) only.
- Practitioners of 10 years and above post- graduation N20,000.00 (Twenty thousand naira) only.
This review takes effect with the renewal for 2017 annual practising license.
The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, by this public notice, also reminds ALL MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS, DENTAL SURGEONS AND THEIR EMPLOYERS that the Medical and Dental Practitioners Act Cap M8 Laws of the federation of Nigeria, 2010 requires that all practitoners pay their annual practising fees before the beginning of each year to be eligible to practice legally.
Failure to comply with this requirement is a contravention of the Law for which the doctor concerned and his employer would be liable to prosecution.
Doctors are to pay their practicing fees into the Treasury Single Account (TSA) through the Council’s website (www.mdcn.gov.ng) after they must have updated their records on the Council’s Registration portal.
