SMA's International Involvement

Singapore Medical Association is the representative national medical association of Singapore and has membership in the World Medical Association (WMA), the Confederation of Medical Associations in Asia and Oceania (CMAAO), and the Medical Association of SE Asian Nations (MASEAN).

Through our membership in these organisations, we seek to advance healthcare in Singapore and beyond our shores as we share perspectives and experiences through formal and informal forums.

For doctors in Singapore who are planning to practice overseas in the short or long term, SMA can assist in providing connections with the corresponding national medical association so that you can stay in touch with Singapore, as well as find support in your intended country of practice.
