Welcome to ACMA. We are the African Caribbean Medical Association UK.
We aim to increase the presence of African Caribbean medics at every stage of the healthcare profession. Our goal is to build a network of socially conscious clinicians who advocate for, promote and effect structural change in the UK.
We have several groups made up of committees who have creative independence on the events they host. Our groups run a variety of activities and provide a number of services.

How ACMA Works.
ACMA is made up of groups located at universities, Health Boards and deaneries across the UK. The national team (ACMA UK) co-ordinate and support these groups. Each ACMA group is affiliated to the ACMA UK charity and are responsible for activities at the local level whilst keeping the overarching aims of the wider ACMA UK organisation.
