IMELF Africa 2023

The Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA), in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) and the University of Pretoria and with the support of Life healthcare, hosted IMELF Africa 2023 in Pretoria on 22 and 23 February 2023. IMELF was launched by the RCPSC in 2008 and is a platform where medical educational leaders gather to share experiences and insights and forge global networks for mutual assistance and inspiration.

The CMSA is dedicated to promoting the highest degree of skill, efficiency, ethical standards and professional conduct in medical and dental practice. It strives to support of the structure and function of health care services and medical professionals in Africa. With Africa facing a crisis in medical specialist care and too few medical specialists being trained and retained on the continent, and with practice environments not conducive to wellness and success and most Africans denied the United Nations global commitment to universal health coverage, at this invitation only Forum, medical deans, leaders of Colleges and other luminaries in postgraduate medical education from Africa and beyond gathered for compelling discussions and to reach proposals on topics pertinent to Leadership for Wellness and Success of Specialist Health Care in Africa.
