Information Resources & Professional Network
To continue to be an informed resource and advocate for IMGs, AIMGA scans research and conducts studies on key issues affecting IMGs in our province and across the country. We also collaborate with other organizations to conduct and disseminate research to IMGs. Through information resources and program activities, AIMGA strives not only to keep its members informed about the current issues facing IMGs in our province, but also to help them become active contributors to the growth of its medical community.
