"The South African Medical Association" accreditation is set for students who came from South Africa. The history of SAMA goes back to the 19th century when doctors practising in the then large and thriving towns of South Africa, mainly Cape Town, Grahamstown, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Kimberley, formed their own associations as branches of the British Medical Association. It was only in 1927 that these branches, by this stage spread throughout the country, were brought together and constituted as the national Medical Association of South Africa (MASA). Next major and most significant development in SAMA’s history was the unification of the fragmented, pre-democracy medical groups prompting the formal reconstitution of the SA Medical Association as we know it today on 21 May 1998. Our Objective To represent doctors with authority and credibility in all matters concerning their interests in the health care environment To promote the integrity and image of the medical profession To develop medical leadership and skills To provide doctors with knowledge relevant to the demands of medical practice To promote medical education, research and academic excellence To encourage involvement in health promotion and education To influence the health care environment to meet the needs and expectations of the community by promoting improvements to health reform, policy and legislation.
