APC fees going up by 6 times next year?

A leaked circular with the proposed increase in fees imposed by the newly corporatised Malaysian Medical Council shows a stunning increase in the annual APC fee from RM50 to RM300.
If you have been following this blog, it’s actually not news as we warned you about it last year (Proposed Amendments to the Medical Act)

Anyway, be prepared to fork out more money for everything related to registration – MQE, APC, NSR (registration and annual fees) etc. etc.


For Malaysian doctors, you can keep up to date with the news via:

1) The Dobbs doctors Facebook group. If you are on Facebook you can click to join but you may be asked for verification as a Malaysian medical doctor or dentist (sorry, no medical students)
2) Dobbs forum – registration is free. Follow the steps listed in order to gain access.
