PUBLIC NOTICE ON REVIEW OF PRACTICING FEES OF MEDICAL AND DENTAL COUNCIL OF NIGERIA

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria hereby informs ALL MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS AND DENTAL SURGEONS that annual practicing fees have been reviewed as follows:

a.     Practitioners of less than 10 years post-graduation will pay N10,000 (Ten thousand naira) only as their annual practicing fee.

b.     Practitioners of 10 years and above 10 years post-graduation will pay N20,000 (Twenty thousand naira) only as their annual practicing fees.

This review takes effect from renewal for 2017 annual practicing license.

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, by this public notice, 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 practitioners pay their annual practicing fees before 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 will be liable for prosecution.

Doctors are to pay 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.
