A guide to plastic surgery regulations in Thailand
The Ministry of Health is responsible for the overall direction of healthcare in Thailand. This includes the creation of a comprehensive hospital accreditation system.
Registration of all doctors qualified to practice within the country is the responsibility of the Thai Medical Council.
The Thai Medical Association is the main professional society representing the interests of the medical profession in Thailand. Plastic Surgeons should be registered with The Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons of Thailand.
Thai doctors train for 5 or 6 years before qualifying as a Doctor of Medicine. Graduates of the state medical schools are then required to spend 3 years as medical interns in a state hospital.
Thailand has 45 recognized medical specialties of which plastic surgery is one. Specialist qualification for plastic surgery follows qualification at General Surgery and requires 2/3 years of training in addition to the 3 years surgical specialisation.
Medical Council of Thailand has created a Center for Continuing Medical Education to promote professional development among the country's physicians.
Disagreements with specific doctors should be addressed to the Thai Medical Council. Institutions approved or accredited by the Ministry of Health may be disciplined by the Ministry, with the Ministry having the ability to remove the right to provide care.
Cases involving criminal malpractice may be addressed directly to the civil courts. There is a Patient Bill of Rights in Thailand and any violation of this bill is grounds for public complaint.
Storage and Access to Medical Records
Thai doctors have an ethical obligation to protect the personal information of their patients.
