The Health Professions Council of Zambia (HPCZ has set to resume Professional Licensure Examinations (LEx) for new graduates, in the first quarter of 2023 following extensive consultation and planning.

HPCZ Senior Public Relations Officer Terry Musonda said this implies that starting Monday, 26th December 2022, HPCZ will no longer be registering new health practitioners as they will be required to sit for both theory and practical Professional Licensure Examinations before they are licensed to practice in Zambia.

Mr. Musonda also said the HPCZ Professional Licensure Examinations, planned to accommodate as many locally and internationally trained new graduates as possible, will be conducted simultaneously in Livingstone, Ndola and Lusaka.

“The HPCZ Professional Licensure Examinations are a transparent quality assurance mechanism, aimed at assessing basic competencies and providing an opportunity for new registrable health professionals to demonstrate adequate knowledge and skills,” he said.
