The Medical Council of India (MCI) is a statutory body with the responsibility of establishing and maintaining high standards of medical education and recognition of medical qualifications in India. It registers doctors to practice in India, in order to protect and promote the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards in the practice of medicine.
It is our mission to develop systems which shall continuously assess the needs, enhance the quality and standards of medical education and training in India. Our objective is to attract, foster talent, provide the best opportunities for career advancement and the spirit of excellence in medical profession.
The large gaps in health care accessibility in rural parts of the country, the need for enhanced clinical competence and limited opportunities for post-graduate training are our major concerns. MCI will endeavour to build the capacity and competency of doctors. It is equally important that the activities of the Council should continue to be carried out with full accountability, transparency and efficiency.
I take this opportunity to call upon all medical professionals to share the vision of MCI and support a culture of transparency, accountability and zero tolerance to corruption and to institutionalize a system of constructive and ongoing engagement with all stakeholders.
I hope you will find this website useful. Your suggestions and feedback would be of immense help to the Council and the same can either be posted or mailed to the members of the Board of Governors to their e-mail ids as listed on the website.
With Best wishes to all.
Dr. K. K. TALWAR
