About the Vancouver Medical Association

Mission

helping local medical practice

Since its founding in 1898, the Vancouver Medical Association has educated, communicated, and advocated for Greater Vancouver’s medical community.

The story of the VMA will be developed on our History page.

Since 2012, the VMA has enjoyed a growing membership, up from 79 to over 400. We invite our local medical community to share camaraderie at our annual Osler Dinners where we recognize our Primum Inter Pares awardees.

Executive

Our Executive is looking for new and better ways for the VMA to make a difference. Our current Executive is:

  • Jim Busser – President
  • Charles Webb – Secretary, Treasurer
  • Dennis Bhui
  • Susan Burgess
  • Erik Cadesky
  • Shikha Minhas
  • Mike Moss
  • Ernie Kane

New energy and ideas are always most welcome. If you would like to pitch in, let us know.
