Explanation:
its a title all together. In my opinion it is not possible to translate it in an adequate manner

usually its a:
Médecin Inspecteur Régional de la Santé

its the first time I see "general" in this title, but then again perfectly possible

Regional Health Inspector/MD


Explanation:
or: General Practioner/Regional Health Inspector

or just simply "Regional Health Inspector"

It's all one title I believe, I found a few sites mentioning "Médecin Inspecteur Régional de la Santé" as well as "Pharmacien Inspecteur".Don't think there is such a title in English but maybe one of the two above may be acceptable...

Explanation:
The correct spelling would "Médecin Général,Inspecteur Régional de la Santé". (with a comma between)
"Médecin Général" is rank (either civilian or military) and "Inspecteur Général de la Santé" is a function, a specialization.
Hope it helps!
