Medical Regulators 

Around the World

 
  • About Us

Our vision is that everyone around the world is treated and cared for by safe and competent doctors

Medical regulation protects the public. Every day, medical regulatory authorities (MRAs) around the world strive to fulfill their mandate—to protect, promote, and maintain the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards for the profession of medicine. IAMRA exists to support the world’s medical regulatory authorities in this endeavor. Through scientific, educational, and collaborative activities, IAMRA strives to encourage best practices among the world’s MRAs and to respond to both their current and future needs.  


A truly global collaboration, IAMRA welcomes applications from MRAs and other organizations involved in medical regulation, from medical schools, and from organizations involved in regulating other health professions. As a membership organization, IAMRA values the communication, participation, and interaction that are key to the success of this international collaboration. 

We invite you to learn more about the benefits of membership and our membership levels.

Message from the IAMRA Chair


IAMRA would like to recognize the extraordinary effort and dedication of medical regulatory authorities around the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


We know that you are working hard to maintain focus on public health and safety and ensuring high standards of clinical practice while at the same time, working from home, advising government, responding to medical capacity and training requirements as well as innumerable other issues. Many of your council and board members are also front-line practitioners adding to the challenges of delivering effective and responsive regulation at this difficult time. Your dedication and support of medical practitioners is, no doubt, making a positive difference to the pandemic’s trajectory.

Medical regulation is a challenging and pressured at the best of times, but even more so during these times of great change and uncertainty. IAMRA’s Management Committee and Secretariat acknowledge your hard work and commitment in keeping your communities safe in these unprecedented times.


Please be assured that  IAMRA’s Management Committee is also working hard to shift the Association’s priorities in response to the effects of the pandemic. Shortly, we will be sharing our plans for the coming months, starting with a webinar devoted to medical regulation in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.


With my very best wishes and heartfelt appreciation,


Dr. Kgosietsile Letlape

Chair of IAMRA



Cancelled - 2020 IAMRA International Conference on Medical Regulation


After careful consideration of the evolving concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, the IAMRA Management Committee and the Conference host,  the Health Professionals Council of South Africa  (HPCSA) have made the very difficult decision not to proceed this year with the 14th IAMRA Conference, scheduled to be held in Johannesburg, South Africa September 15-18, 2020.

 

This decision was not made lightly. Since January, IAMRA has been monitoring international developments, and on March 23rd South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa declared a National State of Disaster in South Africa. In line with the precautionary measures he announced, our top priority must be the health, safety and well-being of delegates, staff, exhibitors, sponsors, other stakeholders, and of course the people of South Africa. We strongly believe that this is the right decision in these unprecedented times.


IAMRA sincerely thanks HPCSA staff for all their hard work to date in preparing for the Conference and looks forward to bringing you more information about future IAMRA events; in particular, new arrangements for the 14th IAMRA Conference.


If you have already registered for the conference, HPCSA will contact you about refunding your registration fee. We kindly ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this process. 


Also, as a friendly reminder, if you have already booked accommodation, please contact the hotel directly to cancel your reservation.


IAMRA and HPCSA wish you, your family, friends and colleagues good health.
