The 2017 Scientific conference of the Islamic Medical association of Queensland is an annual meeting place for members to share ideas and learn about the latest developments in the field of medicine. It is also a platform for members to network and broaden their professional circles.
The event will aim to invite both scientific and faith based speakers on topics which have been highlighted by our members as areas of interest.
The conference will be at the Hilton Hotel Brisbane on 29 October 2017. Halal meals and snacks will be provided for all attendees and Salah facilities will be available on site.
We look forward to meeting you at the conference and hope it will be both a medically stimulating and a spiritually uplifting experience.
The conference is open to ALL Medical, Dental and Allied healthcare professionals and students in these disciplines, including non IMAQ members.
With the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Myanmar, IMAQ will be donating your entire registration fee to the Myanmar Appeal.
Please find below the program for the day.

The Islamic Medical Association of Queensland Inc. (IMAQ) was formed in Brisbane in 2010 to establish a network of Muslim Healthcare Professionals.
The initial need to establish an organisation of Muslim healthcare professionals in Queensland was first identified a few years ago in response to the increase in the number of health professionals and the specific needs of both our Muslim healthcare providers and those of our patients.
In January 2010 a group of Doctors, Dentists and Allied Health Professionals eventually came together to establish the organisation, which was officially launched in July 2010.
IMAQ's primary objective is to establish a network of Muslim healthcare professionals. Most of these are recent migrants and many are overseas qualified graduates and we have no local network to pool this wealth of resources across all our various disciplines.
Our members include Medical, Dental and Allied Healthcare Professionals, as well as students in these various disciplines. Members are primarily based in Queensland but we do have members from other states across Australia.
We now have about 230 members across Queensland.
We aim to establish regional branches across the state. In February 2012 a local branch established in Mackay.
If you would like to establish a local branch in your area kindly contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMAQ will provide a forum and resources to promote an awareness of Islamic medical ethics and values amongst our members and the wider community, whilst we disseminate information and guidelines of practice to our members and our patients, all within the Islamic framework.
We encourage members to get involved in the activities and events hosted by IMAQ, and would like to receive your suggestions and feedback on these activities.
The IMAQ executive meet monthly and we look forward to your attendance and participation in these meetings to share your thoughts and ideas.
