Continuing Medical Education (CME)
CME activities are offered once a month usually on the last Saturday of each month. Continuous Medical Education (CME) has been a major goal of the SLMDA over the last few years and in fact is mandatory for re-registration as a medical and dental practitioner.
Please note that Under the HPA, medical & dental practitioners are required to submit evidence of continuing professional development and CME– Section 49 (310(b)(ii)
We all recognize the importance of doctors remaining up to date in their practice of medicine, and its benefits to the general public.
At each CME activity we ensure that participants leave our conference, refreshed and with a renewed desire to continue learning.

The Association represents its members in negotiating with the Government every three years. These negotiations determine wages, salaries and conditions of service of members who are employed with the Government. The SLMDA is also the active voice of the medical and dental community where legislature concerning medical and dental practice is concerned.
The SLMDA can also represent members in areas of dispute with their employer, whenever the need arises.
