UK Ireland Student Chapter
The student chapter in the UK & Ireland was formed in the year 2002, the leadership pioneered by a number of first year medical student.
This is meant to provide an early venue for Muslim medical students to integrate themselves in the ideals and practices of Islamic medicine.
To consolidate the knowledge, experience and expertise of Muslim doctors to serve humanity at large.
To be in every sense a dutiful member to the larger society, fully acting, interacting and caring for it.
To highlight and integrate the medicine field and those related to it as an important part in an Islamic worldview.
IMAM's SC Activity Scope
While adhering to the main objectives of Islamic medicine and service to humanity, the scope of activity for IMAM UK‐Eire Student Chapter is quite wide, giving utmost consideration to the student population that it represents.
a. We plan to arrange seminars, symposiums and practical training sessions from time to time.
b. Academic discussion, support and advice from member‐to‐member with assistance by practicing doctors.
