The structure of Imamia Medics International gets strength from its members, Board of Regents members, IMI Headquarters, National Board of Directors members, Chapter representatives, staff and volunteers.
While IMI’s beneficiaries (and many supporters!) are from diverse backgrounds, as a faith-based entity, membership in the global platform and any chapter is constitutionally limited to Jafari Shia Muslims. Membership is available for professional and associate (non-health professional) member classes and as annual or lifetime payments.
As a health professional organization, voting rights are reserved for IMI members from professional backgrounds in health/health-related fields. While we cherish our student and associate members and will always do our best to keep them informed and to follow up on their input/thoughts and ideas, our members in this category are unfortunately not eligible to vote.
Membership dues are set by national chapters Board of Directors and will vary by country.
