pourquoietre membre

The QMA is the only professional association that gives a voice to the entire medical profession. In addition to defending the professional interests of Québec physicians, the QMA supports them both in their practices and in their personal lives.

Additionally, by becoming a QMA member, physicians also become members of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA). This joint membership has many advantages: a nationally-recognized platform for action and representation, a way to take part in innovative methods of practice, a series of customized services and training events, and more.


All QMA-CMA members can benefit from numerous exclusive, customized services designed for physicians. Come see the advantages of QMA-CMA membership for yourself!
