Irish Medical Organisation

Policy and International Affairs


The IMO in its mission statement is committed to the development of a caring, efficient and effective Health Service and thus a key activity of the IMO is advocacy. The IMO develops policy on a wide range of Health Service and Societal issues and aims to influence Government proposals in a constructive and practical way. The development of IMO policy is the remit of the Council. Policy is also developed on foot of IMO AGM Motions and in conjunction with the IMO membership.

International Policy is the remit of the IMO International Affairs Committee. The IMO works across a number of European and International medical organisations to represent the interests of Irish doctors on medical education and training issues, along with professional, ethical and socio-medical affairs. By working with other National Medical Associations, the IMO can contribute effectively to debate and influence policy through collaborative international structures.
