A Nonprofit, Nonpolitical, and Nondenominational Professional Medical Association

Since 1960, physicians who had graduated from Burma had migrated to the USA for postgraduate training. They can only meet each other at social  gatherings occasionally  and  had felt the need for a well-organized association to coordinate the social gatherings and to maintain contact and share information and experiences to assist one another for the training and practice and settling down in certain communities. With that common goal in mind, a group of Burma medical graduates gathered at Fullerton, California and held a preliminary meeting to explore the feasibility of the formation of such an organization which should be non-profit in status and tax-exempt, formed purely for the purpose of social, educational gatherings and community service. After several meetings, various temporary committee members were chosen to carry out the drafting of the by-laws and structure of the Board of Directors. On May 8, 1982, the first dinner meeting was held at the Golden Dragon Restaurant in Los Angeles. The President gave a speech explaining the purpose of the organization and stressed the importance of team spirit and unity.

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

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


With warm regards,

Dr.Mya Myo Aye, MD
