Links with Overseas Medical Organisations

The Academy of Medicine has greatly valued its relationship with the Royal Colleges in the Commonwealth and Ireland. It has also been keen to establish close rapport with our neighbours in the Asean region and with the United States. The Council has always regarded these links as invaluable and representatives were sent from the Council to attend the annual meetings of these organisations. Whenever possible, the Master himself attends as the representative of the Academy.

In 1987, in association with the post-graduate medical bodies worldwide, the Academy co-founded Action in International Medicine (AIM) which is a global alliance of doctors, nurses and other health professionals with the object of fostering international co-operation to help poorer countries with medical expertise. At AIM's recent meeting in Toronto Dato' Dr. S.C.E. Abraham represented the Academy in the deliberations to effect aid to under developed countries.

More recently it has been possible to hold joint meetings with overseas Colleges and these meetings have been found to be of immense value and have been highly successful. In 1987, a joint meeting was held with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. In 1989 a similar joint meeting was held with the Royal College of Surgeons of England and this year we are having a meeting with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland. Plans are under way to hold a joint meeting with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in August 1993 in Kuala Lumpur.
