Countries have established specialist Colleges such as newly established Division of Medical Management. Medical Management is now recognised in developing countries like Hong Kong,Singapore,India and Malaysia,which set up standards and conduct examinations for Fellowships in Medical Management.
The Society has started the process of revival of Medical Management as a Specialty and had sent letters of intention to various stakeholders and received favourable response from most of them.It was agreed that the proposed speciality will be called ‘Medical Management’ and the specialist would be called ‘Medical Management Specialist’.
At the Council meeting of the College of Public Health Medicine of South Africa, in Bloemfontein on 19th October 2006, ‘Division of Medical Management’ was created under the College of Public Health Medicine to drive this initiative.
