1948 – The HMA becomes IMA

 

With the establishment of the State of Israel, the Hebrew Medical Society in the Land of Israel (HMA) became the Israeli Medical Association (IMA). During the first years of the young state, most of the organization’s efforts were dedicated to consolidating the status of the Israeli physician in the public sector and to building and defining its relations with the Histadrut, The General Federation of Labor in Israel.
 
Despite its focus on employment benefits and wages, the IMA continued its activities in the scientific-medical area, through the publication of the periodical HaRefuah and the organization of professional conferences. It also supported the establishment of the medical school of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
