The AMLPM was established by a group of doctors who provide or have provided medical services in Macau. This association aims to promote medical-scientific dialogue, continuing medical education, the protection of public health in MSAR, as well as involving all physicians of the Portuguese-speaking community in scientific projects in order to give greater visibility to AMLPM.
The idea of a small dynamic group of doctors became the purpose of many, bound by a common desire to join the Portuguese-speaking doctors of Macau to be part of this project. The purpose of the AMLPM is to promote scientific dialogue with other medical organizations within Macau, Hong Kong, China as well as International groups. We aspire to integrate our association in the Portuguese-speaking Medical Community.
The passion for the field of medicine among the Portuguese-speaking medical community in Macau is the driving-force behind the creation of this association. The objective of this project is to create a forum where a number of current issues can be discussed as well as a place to grow as a medical scholar by interacting with specialists and experts from a number of fields.
The creation of AMLPM coincided wtih China’s desire to constitute Macau as a bridge between the portuguese-speaking countries and itself, not only in terms of commerce, economy and culture but also in regards to the exchange of healthcare with these countries.
A significant opportunity was seized to establish a professional medical association by taking advantage of the amenities provided by MSAR. The “Associação dos Médicos de Língua Portuguesa de Macau” welcomes physicians who wish to grow as scholars both intellectually and professionally. Our mission as an organization is to serve the Macanese society in an effective and beneficial manner.
