The Minister of Health and Chairman of the Jordanian Medical Council (JMC), Feras Al-Hawari, affirmed that the distinguished, competent and qualified doctor is the centerpiece and beating heart of the health system.
He said that the JMC set recognized training specifications for general practitioners or specialist in the various branches of medicine and dentistry inside and outside the Kingdom, and reviews them periodically to develop and enhance training to keep pace with medical progress on a worldwide basis.
Hawari said during the launching ceremony of the e-services at the JMC Thursday, that the electronic transformation plan comes in line with and in response to the royal directives to develop the services provided by public and private institutions, to provide electronic services that doctors need to reach all services electronically.
He indicated that the council has been striving, since its establishment in the 80s, to keep pace with developments in the scientific and technological fields, in terms of expanding the adoption of training and education programs for doctors, granting certificates of total examination and specialization, and computerizing the examination for the Jordanian Board of Medicine and Dentistry.

According to Abdallat, the new e-services allows for browsing in a modern manner while providing the necessary information and electronic services for doctors of different levels to increase interaction, which in turn is reflected positively in serving the Jordanian medical sector.
He stressed that the medical and ethical responsibility necessitates moving forward to develop medical care to serve patients and preserve their lives, so that Jordan remains the first and preferred health destination on the Arab and international scopes.
Abdallat indicated that this first phase of the electronic transformation included the establishment of a database for all doctors and the provision of a platform through which the doctor could register for training and exams.
In the second phase, the electronic payment service for all the council’s services will be provided through the system (bills) and the activation of the electronic signature service for transactions.
