Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (abbreviated as PMDC), established in 1962, is a regulatory authority for practitioners and students of medicine and dentistry in Pakistan. It was established under Pakistan Medical & Dental Council Ordinance 1962 as a body corporate. It is known and respected worldwide and is part of international community of medical regulatory authorities (IAMRA). Pakistani doctors are considered one of the best and are doing meritorious service in all parts of the world and that is a testimony to the innovative and effective regulation of medical education and registration of doctors after revamping the redundant systems by the Registrar PMDC Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar. No Pakistani Doctor can practice in Pakistan or abroad without being registered with PM&DC[1] or without being in good standing with it.


Its elected President till August 2012 was Prof Syed Sibtul Hasnain and its Registrar is Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar. PMDC has its headquarters located in Islamabad and regional offices in Lahore, Karachi. Peshawar and Quetta.
