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 Profsession ACT (HCPA) 2003, Chap 464 of the Laws of Malta and those of the EU Directive 2005/36/EC.
The Medical Council will only be able to assist you once a duly filled application form, having enclosed all the requested documentation is received.
