For Medical Association Of Jamaica
The following is an extract from their website:
The MIJ evolved from the BMA Jamaica Branch which was constituted as the first overseas branch of the British Medical Association in 1877.
After independence, the Medical Association of Jamaica was formed to replace that body.
There are now over two thousand (2,000) members (representing all specialties, including medical students).
The MAJ is the umbrella organisation for all professional medical associations and societies in Jamaica. All of which has a representative elected to sit on the Council of the Association. Past Presidents, Branch Chairmen, and Chairman of special committees also sit on Council.
The MIJ provides a wide range of advisory services including health sector reform and rationalization, continuing medical education seminars and workshops, insurance – medical indemnity general, motor vehicle, health, disability and income replacement.
The activities of the Association are financed from the income derived from annual membership subscriptions, symposia, MAJ travel club, endorsements, investments, premium commission earned from the conduct of business services which include medical indemnity insurance, fax and photocopying.
The Association’s head office is located in central Kingston and is staffed by an Administrator, Secretary/Receptionist, Secretary (Temporary) and two other full-time members of staff. There are branch offices in St. James, Manchester, and St. Ann.
The Association is a registered non-profit organization which is run by elected officers including a President, President Elect, Vice President, an Honorary Secretary and Assistant Honorary Secretary, an Honorary Treasurer and Assistant Honorary Treasurer, and a Council comprising of elected officers, past presidents and presidents/chairmen of member associations/societies.
The activities of the Association are run by a series of executive management committees.
