The Family Medicine Association Malaysia was born on 17 August 2001.The idea of forming an association representing primary care physicians all over Malaysia was mooted by the senior Family Medicine Specialists (FMS) after 3 years’ inception of the Family Medicine fraternity. It took one year to finalize the foundation of the association and finally achieved the approval from the Registrar of Society (ROS) to form an official registered association representing the biggest fraternity in Malaysia.
FMSA membership transcends across the nation allowing membership of FMS practicing in government sector, private practicing FMS and FMS from the academician professional body. Since the formation, FMSA has grown stronger and mature in every way. The growth and development of the association has been contributed by previous past presidents and executive councils whose leadership and visionary ideas generated strength and unity among the members regardless of its background and diverse beliefs
