“ Indian Medical Association is the only representative, national voluntary organisation of Doctors of Modern Scientific System of Medicine, which looks after the interest of doctors as well as the well being of the community at large.
The founding fathers wayback in 1928, while struggling for liberation of the Motherland from British rule simultaneously felt the need of a national organisation of the medical profession. Before that, some members of the profession – a selected few – were members of the British Medical Association, which had opened branches in India to cater to the local needs. These stalwarts, ultimately succeeded in formation of Indian Medical Association and reached an agreement with the British Medical Association that they will have no branch in India, and got mutually affiliated, which relationship continues till today. Indian Medical Association in the year 1946 helped in organisation of the World body, namely, World Medical Association, and thus became its founder member. As an organisation it has been, and continues to play an important role.”
About IMA

President’s Desk


This is my first communication with you as a President of Pune branch. I have already laid out my plans for the year in my last message so here I am taking the opportunity to thank my friend and outgoing President Dr.Avinash Bhutkar. He has set new standards of excellence for this post and I now have a challenge to keep the working of IMA up to that standard- which I will try my best to do with the help of all of you.

When I was in medical college, my best teacher during a clinico pathological correlation meeting said,” Always think of the common things first and you will be commonly right. Do the clinical examinations thoroughly, do minimum investigations and treat your patient accordingly. Follow up is very important. Respect patients all the complaints, even trivial ones, note them down and change the treatment accordingly. If in doubt consult your colleague. If all this doesn’t work refer the patient to the specialist. The specialist will do the needful and send the patient back to family physician. (you) again for follow-up.”
