World Federation of Medical Managers

A meeting of invited international clinical leaders was held in the Council Chambers of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine, Jockey Club Building, 99 Wong Chuck Hang Road, Aberdeen, Hong Kong, on Saturday 4 September 2010 ahead of the joint annual conference of the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) and the Hong Kong College of Community Medicine (HKCCM). There were representatives from Australasia, Hong Kong, Canada, UK, Ireland, Italy and Indonesia at the meeting with apologies from USA, China and Canada. There was discussion about the proposal to form an international network of organisations representing the interests of medical leaders and managers e.g. a World Federation of Medical Managers® (WFMM) and with a commitment to enhancing medical leadership through support to develop leading practices that affect change in the quality of medical engagement in health services management. Since this an annual International Medical Leaders Forum has been held in conjunction with the Society of Italian Medical Managers (SIMM) conference in Rome on 16 April 2011 and with the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in San Francisco on 26 April 2012.
