Recognized Programs


Nepal Medical Council was established in 2020 (1964), by the act No: 35 and in exercise of the powers, conferred by Nepal Medical Council act, Government of Nepal had framed its rules in the same year. In 2024(1968), Government of Nepal declared the regulations of Nepal Medical Council by publishing in “Nepal Gazette”. Till date there were four amendments of Nepal Medical Council act, as per changing trend of medical education and medical services throughout the world including Nepal and the last amendment was held in 2057(2001).

In the present context, considering national, regional and global trend, I think, the major responsibilities of Nepal Medical Council are:

  1. Standardization of Medical education (academics), 
  2. standardization of medical practices (health services), 
  3.  encourage and compel all medical doctors to follow the code of medical ethics and finally 
  4. disciplinary action, whenever there will be violations of medical ethics and discipline.
