Association of Surgeons of Malta


Founded in 1995

The Association of Surgeons of Malta (ASM) was established in 1995 to encourage postgraduate training and to improve standards of patient care. It supervises the surgical training programme and recommends trainees for specialist certification and strives to ameliorate surgeons' working conditions.

The ASM has organised masterclasses with foreign surgeons and also various conferences and meetings. It has established links with foreign institutions and the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). The ASM negotiated tariffs with the local medical insurance agencies.

The ASM was involved in the development of a postgraduate Curriculum for Surgical Training and is represented on the Specialist Advisory Committee (SAC). It also organises various social events.
