No one cares about the doctors
     

I love my doctors. I have an undiagnosable autoimmune disease. It's mostly manageable, my lab work is perfect, and I rarely get sick. I get allergy shots and take blood pressure medication. I always have at least low level, mostly familiar, physical symptoms. Occasionally a new one appears. Sometimes it is scary. --> read

Don't blame the oversupply of doctors solely on foreign medical students
     

We refer to the statement from the Higher Education Minister, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, that placed the blame of the oversupply of doctors on the foreign medical students.

The Federation of Private Medical Practitioners' Associations, Malaysia (FPMPAM) is fully aware that there are some foreign medical schools admitting students whose academic qualifications would not have qualify them to enter a local university for courses with lesser entry requirements than medicine. Many such students gain entry through the agencies of these medical schools. --> read


     

 
Statement of the FPMPAM on the issue of Drs and Sdn Bhd
     

The Federation have issued this statement in response to the article in Malaysiakini 22.7.2016 where among other things it was stated that,

"The Inland Revenue Board (IRB) currently only contents that medical practitioners that provide medical consultancy in the private hospital are not allowed to carry on that business source using Sdn Bhd but instead should be reported using sole proprietorship."

"In short, only the income received from private hospital by the doctor is to be reported under the doctor sole proprietor name and not in the Sdn Bhd. The recent directive or guideline issued by the IRB to the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) would mean that despite there being a contract entered into between the private hospital and the Sdn Bhd owned by the doctors, they have to revert back to sole proprietorship now"

The Federation questions the validity of this statement. The stand of the Federation is as follows: --> read
