IMA Resolutions on Doctor's Day
 
Doctor's Day, as we all know, is the day dedicated to the memory of Dr BC Roy. The day marks his birthday and it is also the day when his physical body left us. But his soul is still alive in our minds. This day also reminds us of our purpose with which we chose medicine as our profession and our responsibilities towards the community.
 
Hence, in a befitting tribute to this legend of medicine, on Doctor's Day this year, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) took some resolutions.
 
Our theme for "Doctor’s Day" for the year 2017 will be “My Family Doctor”.
 
IMA will have “Zero Tolerance” for unethical practices by medical professionals and or medical establishments.  These include Referral Fee, Cuts, Commissions received without involving any services. Offenders can get their names removed from the primary membership of IMA.
 
IMA will not tolerate any targets given to medical specialists who join hospitals.  IMA will soon come out with a standard appointment contract between consultant and corporate hospitals.
