  1. thanks for the info doc But do we also upload our CMEs on the site too

    1. There is a section for educational info. I think you can add CMES there after filling your university details.

  2. How do u get the receipt of payment?

    1. There'll be an online receipt after payment that you can print immediately or save for printing later. You can also print the Remita Retrieval Reference (RRR) number generated after you complete the process and take it to any Bank for payment. Then you'll get a teller copy as evidence of payment.

  3. hello, please how do i get folio number? Thanks

    1. Hello Sammy, your folio number is on your provisional registration certificate as well as on your annual practicing licence certificate.
      In addition, MDCN will send you a mail with your login account data containing your folio number (which will be your user name) and a link to set or change your password.
      Try checking your certificates for your folio number before attempting to use the MDCN website.
