The council then covered the state of Madras, comprising of Andhra, Karnataka, Kerala along with Pondicherry. However, its jurisdiction today covers the state of Tamil Nadu, Union Territories of Puducherry, and the Andaman and Nicobar.

Continuous Medical Education (CME)
Medical colleges or hospitals conduct the CMEs. Accredited programme organisers send out their brochures and practitioners can register for the CMEs/conferences. The organizers of the CMEs/conferences coordinate with the medical councils to procure the medical council credit points for the attendees.
There is usually an observer who comes from the medical council to attend the CME or conference to take note of the proceedings and to assure that it’s all being done in accordance with the regulations of the medical council. Once he/she is satisfied and presents his report and once the organizers submit the attendance for the CME/conference and all the attendees submit the feedback form at the end of the CME/conference, the medical council verifies everything and then after a week or so sends the certificate with the number of credit points procured.
