PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) has called on the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) to clarify its recent statement disclaiming recognition for cardiothoracic surgeons from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

MMA president Dr Azizan Abdul Aziz said data from the National Specialists Register’s (NSR) website previously acknowledged qualifications from the college, but this information seems to have disappeared.
