Toowoomba and District Local Medical Association
Established soon after World War II as a branch of the Australian Medical Association, TDDLMA lays claim to being the oldest Local Medical Association in Queensland.
TDDLMA is an independent body, representing all doctors of the district (be they public or private, and belonging to any craft group).
Apart from representing the collective interests and concerns of its members, TDDLMA is active in promoting:
Public Health Education in collaboration with NGO's and Voluntary Organisations
Health Planning in an advisory capacity with Queensland Health
Social Events including Welcome Functions for New Doctors, LMA Golf Day, and others.
Please join and become involved.
