Protecting the public and
guiding the professions

For Professionals

The Council regulates the health professions in the country in aspects pertaining to registration, education and training, professional conduct and ethical behaviour, ensuring continuing professional development, and fostering compliance with healthcare standards.

Professional Boards


The Medical and Dental Board registers practitioners falling under the professions medical, dental and medical science. We aim to establish a generic framework of core competencies and exit concerns for the training and education of medical, dental and medical science practitioners. We also guide and inform curriculum development processes, and ensure adherence by training institutions to our core competencies and training frameworks. Furthermore we ensure effective communication with our stakeholders and establish up-to-date and relevant ethical rules of behavior and conduct, while facilitating professional matters of decision making.
