About Us

A leading resource and network for American Muslim health professionals

We provide professional networking and mentorship opportunities , act as a resource for medical ethics from an Islamic perspective and perform active medical relief programs and emergency relief efforts to respond to disasters. Our goal is to foster health promotion, disease prevention, and health maintenance in communities around the world through direct patient care, health programs, and advocacy.

IMANA Medical Relief (IMR) programs and emergency relief efforts respond to disasters in dozens of countries across the world. Our volunteers – made up of physicians, health care professionals, and students – travel around the globe to treat people after natural disasters, in conflict zones and in underdeveloped regions. Our programs and volunteers have touched over 2.5 million patients in 31 countries.

= CME

The Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) as a provider of continuing medical education. The ACCME employs a rigorous, multilevel process for evaluating institutions’ continuing medical education programs according to the high accreditation standards adopted by all seven ACCME member organizations.

The education committee of IMANA is committed to providing education within three spectrums of health: physical, mental, and spiritual. We focus on topics that are highly stigmatized in order to break stereotypes and cultural stigmas. They hold Webinars with expert speakers and keep up-to-date resources for the community

= Students & Residents

Our students and residents committee is dedicated to representing medical students, providing a forum for students to communicate with each other and IMANA physicians to shape the future of medicine. At a local level, IMANA student members participate in local community clinics, volunteer in international relief missions with IMANA Medical Relief and opportunities to enhance their medical school experience.
