A Unique Permanent Registration Number for all registered doctors
Dr KK Aggarwal
Under its Digital Mission Mode Project, the Medical Council of India (MCI) is implementing a new Indian Medical Register (IMR) through UPRN (Unique Permanent Registration Number) generation for each registered doctor in India. The UPRN number will be generated for the existing records in IMR, which is approximately 10 lakh.
On implementation of the system, the existing registration numbers of the doctors shall be migrated to a standard system of UPRN. Doctors shall also apply online for additional qualification registration in IMR like post-graduation, super specialty etc. The system can be used to make online applications for services like issue of certificates etc.
Here is how every registered doctor can covert IMR to UPRN.
• Register by Visiting www.mciindia.org and click on “Doctor Login”. Enter basic information like Name and Contact details including email address. A User id and Password will be sent on the email address.
• Doctors need to use this user id & Password to login and enter all the requested details including Personal Details, Contact Details, Aadhar number, and Professional details and upload the latest qualification documents.
• Pay the fees to MCI Online/offline and select Date and time when the Doctor will visit the State Medical Council for verification of the documents.
