Chairman Message

Dr. Chetan N. Patel

Continuing Medical Education is felt need to update the knowledge of all doctors. Imparting new knowledge and skills in medicine to the professional in a systematic manner is possible only through Continuing Medical Education Programme.

Even section 1.2.3 of code of Ethics of MCI says : A Physician should participate in professional meetings as part of Continuing Medical Education (CME) programmes, organized by reputed Professional academic bodies or any other authorized organization. The compliance of this requirement shall be informed regularly to Medical Council of India.

IMA fees that all its members should attend accredited scientific programmes regularly & get updated.

In India, there is no uniform accredited scientific programmes. In view of the certain deficiencies in implementing the uniform levels of Accreditation process by MCI / State Councils, it is the most opportune time for the National Professional Body representing the largest professional group to step in and take over the role of regulatory / education as well.

IMA Accredited Scientific Programme Committee has proposed an uniform credit point system for all over India for the registered Medical Graduate. Once registered on the portal, an Unique ID number will be generated for that medical graduate. With this number, one can attend any accredited scientific programme in India & can earn credit points. The Accredited Scientific Programmes organized by IMA State/ Local branches of specialty association can be viewed on the portal. One has to give one time token fee to earn online credit points. The individual member through his log in & password can see his account where the details of his credit points are available.

There will be information and scientific materials for all the speciality including Government projects & programmes.

The scientific contents are prepared by the topmost Academicians of the countryin their respective fields.

Have a happy learning.
