Physician Information Exchange Working Group

One of IAMRA’s highest priorities is the efficient and effective exchange of information between medical regulatory authorities about the physicians that they register, in the interest of public protection. 


The Physician Information Exchange Working Group’s primary focus is to enhance patient safety and public confidence in medical regulation, and to facilitate international professional mobility, through the timely exchange of relevant, accurate and reliable information on physicians between medical regulatory authorities, (see full Charge).


Over the years, the Committee has developed a number of initiatives to help medical regulatory authorities to reactively and proactively share fitness to practice/disciplinary information on doctors, including the Public Registers Listing.


The Public Registers Listing is part of IAMRA’s ongoing efforts to support and encourage the exchange of

information between medical regulatory authorities and also between health care professionals regulatory

authorities, IAMRA has developed this resource, which lists the authorities who have public registers along with a link to their website.
