Institutions which are Accredited for CME/ CDE Training in Pakistan

In our previous article we have already talked about Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education. This system is introduced to improve the standards of Medical and Dental Fields and to make our Health system up to the standards of Developed countries. Every Doctor or Dentist has to submit Credit hours from 2016 if He/She wants to renew Licence to Practice. With out these credit hours no one can renew Licence to Practice.

This System is very new in Pakistan, so it will take some time for Doctors/Dentists in Pakistan to get familiar with it. There was confusion regarding renewal of Licence to Practice for the year of 2015, whether to submit Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education hours or not, answer to this question is “No”. If anybody wants to renew Licence to Practice for the year of 2015, he/she does not need to submit Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education hours, but for the year of 2016 and so on every one has to submit Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education hours. For the year of 2015 only an affidavit is required to be submitted, on affidavit every doctor has to mention that he/she will submit Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education hours for each year.

In old statement of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council told that for General Practitioner only 5 Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education hours/year are required and for specialist 10 Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education hours/year, but in new quid lines by Pakistan Medical and Dental Council has changed the statement and now General Practitioner will need to submit 15 Credit Hours/Year and specialist will need 30 Credit hours.

So it is more difficult now to get this credit hours as Pakistan Medical and Dental Council increased the required Credit hours for Licence renewal. There are still so many questions regarding Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Dental Education.
