Application Forms & Procedures


The Medical Council Malta is the competent authority for the registration and regulation of Medical Practitioners and Dental Surgeons in Malta.  It is not the competent authority for employment matters.  Registration with the Medical Council Malta gives the right to seek employment in Malta, but it does not provide employment automatically.  Please also note that it is a criminal offence to work as a Medical Practitioner in the Republic of Malta, without holding registration with the Medical Council.
The Medical Council processes applications in line with the provisions of the Health Care Professions ACT (HCPA) 2003, Chap 464 of the Laws of Malta and those of the EU Directive 2005/36/EC and time frames set therein.
The Medical Council will only be able to assist you once a duly filled application form, having enclosed all the requested documentation is received.

NOTICE : Educational Institutions Operating from Malta and Related to Medical and/or Dental Studies
According to Maltese Law (Chapter 464), the Medical Council of Malta (MCM) is the competent authority that regulates the medical and dental professions in Malta, with the ultimate purpose of setting standards, self regulating and safeguarding patients' health and safety.

The MCM is the sole authorised body that is legally empowered to ensure that all graduates of educational institutions related to the medical or dental studies or practice in Malta are registrable. No university or college under the supervision of a university, operating from Malta, can declare that its graduates will be registered in Malta or have equivalence to the degree listed in Annex V of the Professional Qualification Directive 2005/36/EC for Malta on successful completion of their studies, unless the MCM has adjudicated and finalised its decision process.

Students joining any medical or dental educational programme licenced in Malta, should, prior to embarking on such studies, check if the said course/s have been given certification of registration by the Medical Council Malta for their graduates on completion of the said course/s.


The Medical Council Malta (MCM) wishes to inform the general public that the United Campus of Malta (UCM) is not recognised as a licenced higher educational institution in Malta. Any programmes in dentistry presently awarded by the UCM are not conducive to the granting of a licence to practice.
