About.

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.
