Dr Joseph Chikelue Obi : " The International Clinical License for Qualified Medical Doctors has the potential to do Wonders . . ."
General Medical Council Opposition Leader and MLC Boss Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) , Professor Joseph Chikelue Obi , has privately disclosed that the International Clinical License for Qualified Medical Graduates will still not follow an Annual Subscription Format.
Responding to questions during a very brief phone conversation, the exceedingly jovial Professor Obi said :
" The International Clinical License will be issued on a One-Off (Fifty Year) Subscription Basis .
There will be a Simple 2-Tier Licensing System . . . Specialist and Generalist.
Those who have already completed their RCAM Fellowship Appraisal will remain on the Specialist Register - while all New Applicants will be admitted as Generalists.
Any Generalist can either happily remain at that level - or ethically upgrade to the Status of Specialist subject to Prevailing Specialist Appraisal Criteria and all of the Associated Upgrade Fees.
All Applicants will get expediently their 50 Year Clinical License right from the onset ; and this Clinical License will be lawfully used to obtain Appropriate Annual Professional Indemnity Cover from our Statutory Insurance Provider.
Those who economically decide to wait till they have already been suspended (before coming to us) will have to pay a (Massive) Additional Discretionary Fee . . . So it is best that everyone applies early - as the cost of entry onto our Generalist Register for a 50 Year Period is set to be far much less than the annual regulatory cost of being a GMC Licensed (and Registered) Medical Practitioner . . . Yet the ultimate professional benefits of the International Clinical License could be absolutely amazing indeed . . . "
