About Us

The Jewish Medical Association (UK) is an umbrella organisation which supports Jewish medical professionals in the UK, and promotes links between Israeli and British medicine.

The Association was formed in 2007, bringing together several previous Jewish medical groups, including the former British Chapter of the Israel Medical Association and the London Jewish Medical Society.

Since this reorganisation the Jewish Medical Association (UK) has taken on a variety of responsibilities, relating both to local medical educational matters and to facilitating and developing medical connections with Israel.

The Jewish Medical Association (UK)’s mission statement summarises our charitable aims:

  • Providing social and educational activities for Jewish medical and healthcare students and health professionals in the United Kingdom
  • Providing linkage to Israeli health-related institutions and the people who work in them
  • Providing a public forum for the discussion of Jewish issues in medicine and healthcare in the United Kingdom
