ACM Office bearers 2017-2020



ACM representation to MCI regarding signing of lab reports
A recent circular from MCI and later from Kerala state Medical Council had restricted the signing of lab reports to Pathologists. In this context, we, the office bearers had written a letter with signatures from members in Kerala, to Kerala Medical Council and kept all these documents with it. A copy has been sent to MCI and DME,Kerala.
If there is a problem in any hospital or medical college, based on this circular, you can take a printout of the letter and any of the attached documents and give to your management and say that the matter is not settled yet. MCI has to review and give a fresh notice by end of May
