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.
