British Medical Association

The British Medical Association (BMA) is the trade union and professional body for doctors in the UK. We are led by a team of executive directors working towards objectives set by the BMA council. Council sets overall policy which is informed by the needs of grassroots doctors, as determined by the BMA Representative Body, which itself is drawn from branch of practice and regional committees throughout the UK.

World Young Doctors' Organization

Upon their graduation young doctors start a working life that is very interesting, challenging and rewarding; they can finally bring into practice what they have been studying for many years. This is also a time in the lives of young doctors when they are faced with several important questions: how to find a job? How to deal with their new-found responsibilities? How to advance further in their careers? Which specialty to choose? This is paralleled with a period of considerable change in their private lives, such as balancing between family and career.
