ABOUT BIMA

​​President’s Message (2021-2022)

Over the past year, we have nurtured BIMA from its grassroots into the ever-transforming national organisation it is today. Our successes and feats were only accomplished by you, as our supporters, our members, and as our family.

 

BIMA began as a curious idea, an idea to form a national community of like-minded British Indian Medics, all connected to a hub of unlimited and accessible opportunities, whilst being in a safe space to proudly express our culture and heritage. BIMA isn’t just an organisation built on delivering our many tutorials, we’re much more; we’re here to support every step of your medical journey throughout, both socially and professionally.

 

We made it our promise to bring any and every idea brought to us into fruition, as part of this international family, you have our support. To our surprise, BIMA has grown to become an icon that binds every member together and has allowed us to represent our shared identity on a national stage.

 

A notable mention goes to our team, who since August 2020 has diligently put BIMA first, and without them, BIMA wouldn’t be the same. From our novel national mentorship programme to the colourful classical dance workshops, to the remote online socials and to the astonishing academic teaching, our team have delivered above and beyond our expectations. People that make up any organisation change, but the principles that underlie BIMA do not.

 

We move from strength to strength, and it brings us great pleasure to introduce our new additions to the BIMA family. As we embark on our new chapter, we look forward to transitioning out of a shackled pandemic to more lively freedom.
