We have a fully paid membership of more than 450 doctors and dentists, an affiliated Spouses Forum consisting of the spouses of members and an equally large and active Youth Forum of young doctors and medical and dental students.
We have dedicated ourselves to supporting and fostering undergraduate and postgraduate medical and dental education in Sri Lanka. We welcome into our membership, any doctor or dentist who is interested in the welfare of less privileged Sri Lankan medical and dental students.
Inaugurated in 1982, the Sri Lankan Medical and Dental Association in the UK (SLMDA), formerly known as the Sri Lankan Doctors Association (SLDA) is the largest charitable organization of professionals from a Sri Lankan background in the UK.
Welcome to the first SLMDA Newsletter for 2016/17 with its new office bearers. It is a great pleasure and an honour to address you as the new president for 2016/17. We are both honoured and privileged to have Professor DYD Samarawickrema continuing as the editor of this great newsletter.
