    History Of Indian Medical Association

    India’s first ever society of medical professionals was founded in Mumbai - the Bombay Medical Union. It was formed on 22nd December 1883 at a meeting held at the Great Western Hotel, Bombay. In the year 1895 the All India Body of Medical Men was formed in Calcutta. During 1895-1900 two medical conferences were held; one each in Bombay and Calcutta & provincial associations were formed in many cities.

    It was at the 5th All India Medical Conference held at Calcutta on 28th December 1928 under the Presidentship of Dr. G. V. Deshmukh of Bombay a resolution was adopted forming an All India Medical Association with the objects of promotion and advancement of medical and allied sciences in their different branches, improvement of public health and medical education in India and maintenance of honour and dignity of the medical profession. In year 1930, the All India Medical Association was renamed as the Indian Medical Association and the body was duly registered under the Societies Registration Act, XXI of 1860.

    The Association had come into being at a time of political unrest and the country was passing through a big turmoil. Yet it was a matter of great satisfaction that the stalwarts of the medical profession in those days like, Dr. K. S. Ray, Sir Nil Ratan Sircar, Dr. B. C. Roy, Dr. M. A. Ansari, Col. Bholanath. Major M. G. Naidu, Dr. B. N. Vyas. Dr. D. Silva, Dr. N. A. Ghosh, Dr. D. A. Chakravarthi, Dr. Vishwanathan and Capt. B. V. Mukharjee actively participated in the promotion of the Association.

    Some of these stalwarts were also active in the Indian National Congress and had their terms in the jail for participating in the struggle for Independence of the country.

    The Headquarters Office of IMA was originally located at Calcutta. At the suggestion of Dr. S. C. Sen supported by Dr. B. V. Mulay, Dr. Chamanlal C. Mehta and Maj. General Amirchand, the IMA Headquarters was shifted to Delhi in January 1949 after the attainment of Independence. The Journal of IMA continued to be published from Calcutta. Dr. S. C. Sen obtained a plot of land in Indraprastha Estate, New Delhi at a concessional rate from the Government and the project of construction of IMA Building was undertaken. The Foundation Stone of IMA House was laid by the First President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad on 19th September 1958, under supervision of Dr. P. C. Bhatia and with his untiring efforts, the building was completed and opened on 6th September 1964 by the President of India, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan.

    During the British Rule, some selected members of the profession were members the British Medical Association which had branches in India. The stalwarts of IMA succeeded in reaching an agreement with British Medical Association that they would have no branches in India and get mutually affiliated, which relationship continues till today. In the year 1946, IMA helped in the organization of the world body viz. the World Medical Association and thus became its Founder Member through the efforts of Dr. S. C. Sen. Dr. R. V. Sathe, the then President of IMA held the chair of President of WMA when they met in New Delhi in 1962. Another illustrious Past President, Dr. A. K. N. Sinha also held the office of WMA. However, due to admission of the Medical Association of South Africa in the World Medical Association, IMA withdrew from its membership in 1985 because of South Africa’s policy of apartheid. Later Indian Medical Association, after consideration of all aspects of the matter decided in February 1993 to again become a member of the World Medical Association. In pursuance of the above, 45th General Assembly of the World Medical Association at its meeting held on 25th October 1993 approved IMA’s membership of WMA. Past President of IMA Headquarters, Dr. Ketan Desai is the President of WMA at present (2009). IMA has continued to play an important role in the affairs of Commonwealth Medical Association and hosted the 3rd World Conference on Medical Education under the joint auspices of WMA and IMA, at New Delhi in 1966.

    Over the period of 81 years, IMA while maintaining its glorious tradition has secured a place of pride in the community through its over 1700 branches with a total membership of over 2.5 lakhs throughout the country.

    The Indian Medical Association is managed by the elected members of the Central Council and the Working Committee, which lay down the policies and deliberate on the day-to-day activities of the Association.

    The Indian Medical Association has adopted a constitution to function on a democratic pattern, with clearly defined objective laid down in the memorandum of the Association, as under:

    1. To promote and advance medical and allied sciences in all their different branches and to promote the improvement of public health and medical education in India

    2. To maintain the honour and dignity and to uphold the interests of the medical profession and to promote co-operation amongst the members there and

    3. To work for the abolition of compartmentalism in medical education, medical service and registration in the country and thus to achieve equality among all members of the profession.

    MEMBERSHIP AND FUNCTIONING

    The membership of the Association is open to all persons qualified in the modern system of medicine and registered under the Indian Medical Council Act 1956 as amended. Today, It has more than 2.5 lakhs members on its roll through 1700 branches controlled and managed by 28 states, territorial and direct branches throughout the country. Besides, there are about 86 overseas members who have either temporarily gone abroad for study and employment or permanently settled there. These members are kept in touch with the affairs of the Association through the monthly publication namely the “IMA News” and “Journal of the Indian Medical Association”.

    The Indian Medical Association (IMA) is a national voluntary organisation of physicians in India. It was established in 1928[2] as the All India Medical Association, and was renamed the Indian Medical Association in 1930. It is a society registered under The Societies Act of India.

    Background[edit]

    The Indian Medical Association has approximately 350,000 member doctors[2] in 1,700 active local branches in 29 states and union territories in India.[3][4] It is the largest association of medical doctors in India.[5]

    Previously stationed out of Calcutta, the IMA is headquartered in New Delhi.[2] Local branches send representatives to a central council which meets annually.[6] The council delegates to a working committee that represents all state branches and meets at least three times a year.[6]

    The Indian Medical Association is one of the 27 founder members of the World Medical Association,[7] joining in 1948.[2] The IMA left the organization in 1985 due to the WMA's retention of South Africa, then a practitioner of apartheid. The IMA rejoined the WMA in 1993.[2] A Reuters investigative report from 2015 found that the IMA had incorrectly told the WMA that charges of corruption brought by the Central Bureau of Investigation against former IMA president Ketan Desai had been withdrawn.[8][9]

    The IMA has expressed opposition to integrated medicine or the mixing together of systems of medicine in curriculum, practice and research in India, often by using the term "mixopathy".[10][11][12] The IMA has held a number of nationwide protests.[13][14][15] These have included several protests between November 2016 and March 2017[16] that objected to bills raised toward the creation of the National Medical Commission[15][17] which replaced the Medical Council of India on 25 September 2020.[18] In December 2020, approximately one million doctors attended a day-long strike organized by the IMA to protest a federal government rule that allows practitioners of the Indian system of medicine Ayurveda to perform minor surgeries.[19] In early 2021, the IMA held a two-week nationwide hunger strike to protest the government's support for surgical training for postgraduate students of Ayurveda.[20]

    In 2022, Sahajanand Prasad Singh was listed as the national president for the organization.[11] Singh was preceded in the post by surgeon J. A. Jayalal from 2020-2021.[21] Longtime member and cardiologist K. K. Aggarwal held several posts within the IMA including president.[22][23] Ketan Desai served as the organization's head[24] from 2001-2003[25] following a period when he had been found guilty by Delhi High Court of corrupt practices and abuse of power.[26]

    [edit]

    The , (JIMA), is indexed in the Index Medicus. Published monthly, JIMA has over 240,000 subscribers for its electronic version and is also available in microfilm through Bell & Howels, US.[27] JIMA was founded in 1930 by Sir Nilratan Sircar, Bidhan Chandra Roy, Kumud Sankar Ray, and others in Calcutta.[27]

    HISTORY OF IMA KUNNAMKULAM

    (prepared by Dr. Koshy George T.,MS., D.Orth., DNB, President IMA Kunnamkulam  from available records and submitted to the website on 16.02.2015 – to be updated at the end of each IMA year by future office bearers)

    INDIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION

    IMA was started on 28 December 1928. IMA has to date 2,20,000 members including 10,000 life members IMA has 23 State Branches and 9 Territorial branches and 1650 local branches. IMA safeguards interest of its members and participates in all national health programmes. The original annual conference of the association was called All India Medical Conference and was always on 27th of December as part of the pre Independance movement.

    The Indian Medical Association celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in the year 1988 and  completed its 72nd year of glorious functioning on the occasion of the 76th All India Medical conference being held on the 28th December, 2000 at Calcutta. Prior to the formation of the Association, four All India Medical Conferences had been held the first at Calcutta in 1917 under the Presidency of Lt. Col. Raghavendra Rao, the second at Delhi in 1918 with Sir Nil Ratan Sircar as the President, the third in 1919 with Dr. M.. N. Odedar as its President and the Fourth at Nagpur in 1920 under the Presidency of Rao Bahadur Dr. Maharaj Krishnan Kapur. It was at the 5th conference held at Calcutta on 28 December 1928 under the Presidency of Dr. G. V. Deshmukh of Bombay, that a resolution was adopted forming an All India Medical Association with the objects of promotion and advancement of medical and allied sciences in their different branches, the improvement of public health and medical education in India and the maintenance of honor and dignity of the medical profession.. In the year 1930, the All Indian Medical Association was duly registered under the Societies Registration Act, XXI of 1860.

    The association had come in to being at a time when there was political unrest and the country was passing through big turmoil. Yet, it was a matter of great satisfaction that the stalwarts of the medical profession in those days like Dr. K. S. Ray, Sir Nil Ratan Sircar, Dr. B. C. Roy, Dr. M. A. Ansari, Col. Bhola Nath, Major M. G. Naidu, Dr. B.N. Vyas, Dr. D. Silva, Dr. N. A. Ghosh, Dr. D. A. Chakravarthi, Dr. Viswanathan, and Capt. B. V. Mukherjee actively participated in the promotion of the Association. Some of these stalwarts were also active in the Indian National Congress and had their terms in the jail for participating in the struggle for Independence of the country.

    The Association was formed with only 222 members. Yet even with this numerical strength, it could achieve its position of strength and command respect from the British rulers. It could prevent the appointment of a British IMS Officer as a Commissioner of Medical Education in 1929 and it could achieve to organize an all India Medical Register and include the licentiates in it. The Medical Council of India Act was amended to have an elected President in place of a nominated one and it was a matter of a pride that Dr. B. C. Roy, one of the most illustrious past Presidents of IMA, became the first elected President of Medical Council of India followed by many other illustrious presidents of IMA gracing the exalted chair including the past president of the Medical Council of India Late Dr. A. K. N. Sinha.

    The Headquarters Office of the IMA was originally located in Calcutta. At the suggestion of Dr. S. C. Sen supported by Dr. B. V. Mulay, Dr. Chamanlal C. Mehta and Maj. General Amirchand, the IMA Headquarters was shifted to Delhi in January 1949, after the attainment of Independence. The Journal of IMA continued to be published from Calcutta. Dr. S. C. Sen also obtained a plot of land in Indraprastha Estate, New Delhi at the concessional rates from the Government and the project of construction of IMA Building thereon was undertaken, supported by Dr. B. V. Mulay, Dr. Chamanlal Mehta, Dr. C.S.Thakar, Dr.A.P.Mitra, Dr. Ved Prakash, Dr. R.C.Goulatia, Dr. P.C. Bhatia and Dr. D.S. Mehra. The foundation stone of IMA House was laid by the first President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad on September 19, 1958 and the construction of the building was started under the supervision of Dr. P.C.Bhatia who supervised it brick by brick. With his untiring efforts, the building was completed and opened on September 6, 1964 by the then President of India, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan.

    During the British Rule, some selected members of the profession were members of the British Medical Association which had branches in India. The stalwarts of IMA ultimately succeeded in reaching an agreement with British Medical Association that they would have no branches in India and got mutually affiliated, which relationship continues even today. In the year 1964, IMA helped in the organization of the world body viz., the World Medical Association and thus became its founder member through the efforts of Dr. S.C.Sen, Dr. R.V.Sathe, the then President of IMA held the chair of the President of WMA when the WMA met in New Delhi in 1962. It’s a matter of pride that another illustrious Past President of IMA Dr. A.K.N. Sinha also held the office of the WMA. The IMA has been playing an important role in the deliberations of the World Medical Association at New Delhi in the year 1966.. Later developments, however, forced us to take decision to withdraw from World Medical Association in 1985, since the organization refused to expel South Africa despite its dismal record of racial discrimination. The Indian Medical Association after consideration of all aspects of the matter decided in February, 1993 that IMA may again become a member of the World Medical Association. In pursuance of the above, 45th General Assembly of the World Medical Association at its meeting held on October 2–5, 1993 approved IMA’s membership of the WMA. The IMA has continued to play an important role in the affairs of the Commonwealth Medical Association.
