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, 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.

Sri Lanka Medical Association CPD Portal

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. Continuing means it is a continuous process which begins from the day you start practicing as a doctor. The term Professional Development has a broader meaning than just acquiring new knowledge or skills as a doctor. It encompasses one’s own personal development as well.
