Message from the President
Dear Members of Sri Lanka Medical Association,
We express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you, the doctors and the healthcare professionals who are combating COVID -19 in the front line at this very moment. You are real heroes! The SLMA is in the process of implementing a reward programme for the health heroes of Sri Lanka.
Welcome to the Sri Lanka Medical Association
The Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA) is the national professional medical association in Sri Lanka, which brings together medical practitioners of all grades and all branches of medicine.
The SLMA is the oldest professional medical association in Asia and Australasia, with a proud history that dates back to 1887. At its inception, it was called the ‘Ceylon Branch of the British Medical Association’. Later it evolved into the ‘Ceylon Medical Association’ (1951) and after Sri Lanka became a Republic in 1972, it became the ‘Sri Lanka Medical Association’.
The Association aims to provide a forum for its members to further their professional and academic development.
