At BIMA we believe in creating a community that brings together British-Iranian healthcare professionals to collaborate, create and inspire. To achieve this we have identified five key areas which we think will help achieve our vision:

  • Education
  • Networking
  • Charity
  • Research Support
  • Mentoring

BIMA also values the importance of developing and nurturing working relationships with other professional groups whether in the UK or abroad. Over the year we have worked with various organisations:

  • School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS)
  • Iranian Heritage Foundation (IHF)
  • Doostan Charity
  • Rustam School
  • Iran’s Children Charity
  • Iranian Women’s Assocation (IWA)
  • King’s College Iranian Society

This has allowed us to tap into the vast intellectual potential that is the Iranian diaspora, and as the number of British-Iranians in healthcare grows, BIMA can aid the growth of the wider community.
