Description:
The Annual Report for 1982 has been redesigned so that the profession and the public will have a clearer picture of the role of the Medical Council in regulating the practice of medicine in the country. The reason for the Council's existence is to enable the public to identify, through the Register, bone fide medical practitioners. Thus the profession itself is entrusted by the State with setting its standards of competence and behaviour. The alternative, which is the rule in many countries throughout the world, is for the Ministry for Health or its equivalent to supervise those who practise medicine. Thereby the profession is governed by a political Department of State. The profession in Ireland must never forget that it holds a very privileged position backed by the authority of the State. The Council has a number of functions which are reflected in the manner of its principal committees. These may be summarised under the headings of Registration, Education (undergraduate and postgraduate), Discipline and Finance.
