The launch of a digital license profile project was approved by the commission from March 2021 which would enable the medical students to develop their online digital profiles and update their status and profiles digitally with automated verification processes after biometric verification. This would allow PMC to grant them licenses immediately.

Similarly, the commission has approved a policy that will allow the licensed doctors who have stopped practicing or are no longer living in Pakistan to easily notify the commission so that it can halt their renewal process and remove any charges being imposed on their licenses.
