President BAMA (2020) Message

Dear BAMA family,

This year we have witnessed the dedication, commitment, courage, collaboration and innovations from health care communities
across the world .It is awe inspiring to see the hard work, compassion and resilience of health care professionals.
It is more evident how essential the work of healing is and I am humbly satisfied for being part of health care community that
delivers it. I extend my deep respect and gratitude to our BAMA family members who have been taking care of patients and making
a difference in their lives.
It was also our pleasure and honor to be able to organize the donations from our members and Burmese community (total

Virtual Mock Interview Program

As an educational service for Myanmar community during COVID-19 Pandemic, BAMA conducted The Virtual Mock Interview Program for Myanmar Medical Graduates who are seeking for the positions in the Residency Programs in United States on August 15, 2020.

This activity was led by BAMA EC members, Dr.Mya Myo Aye , Dr. Wai Wai Soe , Dr. Htun Tin, Dr. Edna Oo, Dr. Than Lin, and supported by Dr. Ohnma Win, Dr. Su Su Hline, Dr. Kyaw Moe, Dr. Cho Lwin, Dr. Khine Khine Win, who hosted the event, Dr. Mie Mie Thin, Dr. Sophie Chwa, Dr. Moe Aung and Dr. Naing Aung Moore.

This event was virtually attended by fifty Myanmar Medical Graduates who are currently residing in United States , UK and Myanmar. It began with brief introduction of attending physicians to the graduates followed by individual interviews and each lasted for approximately 15 to 25 minutes. Every graduate had opportunity to be evaluated by at least two interviewers. The program concluded at 4 pm, after interviewers gave their evaluations and advice to all participants via Zoom.

BAMA is especially indebted to Dr. Nanda Min Swe, Dr. Myo Htut, Dr. Htein Lin, Dr. Tin Tin Kyaw , Dr. Ei Ei Phyu Soe, Dr. Soe Moe Kyaw, Dr. Thida Win, Dr. Teresa Khoo, Dr. Khin Sandar Lim, Dr. Nyein Aye Tint, and Dr. Kyaw Khine Soe for their kindest participation in the event despite their busy schedules.

President's Message

Dear BAMA members,

I trust you are doing well physically and mentally.

Since earlier this year, COVID pandemic has been dynamic and has a significant impact on us at many levels.  BAMA EC members have also adapted and changed our activities or decisions this year for safety reasons. We have omitted some of our usual activities like public health talk, residency information session etc. We have adapted to virtual meetings, relaying residency application information and tips to candidates via email.
We have conducted virtual mock interview successfully on August 15 th 2020 from 1-4 pm and detail event report will also be shared on this website and also on our BAMA FB page.

We will be sending outstanding achievement awards to those residency candidates with top 5 highest scores in USMLE step 1& 2 (taken within last 3 years) and also recognition award to all those who applied for the award .

5 outstanding achievement award recipients (in alphabetical order):

Aung Myint Myat
Aung Sitt Naing
Pyae Hein Kyaw
Sidney Trevor Aung
Su Wai Moe

Even though we have initially decided to give out only 5 outstanding achievement awards, this year applicants have impressive scores and we want to spread joyous moments to hardworking residency candidates in this stressful time. EC members decided to give 5 more awards to ( in alphabetical order ) : 

Htet Htet Khaing
Kyaw Moe Naing
Mya Hnin Yee Lwin
Myat Shwe Yee Tun
Wyut Yi Thin 

Our EC and BOD team will be making further decision regarding annual dinner depending on the pandemic situation and it would be deferred until further notice.

For Myanmar Medical graduates who are in the process of getting into residency training, membership is free. Just need to email your information to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
