PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Medical Council has decided to give Malaysian medical graduates from recognised schools an endorsement letter instead of a Provisional Registration licence in view of the long waiting period for housemanship.

The council’s chairman Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said this was because the licence was for a three-year period and the long waiting period of six to nine months for housemanship would eat into the three years.
