N.I.M.A. - National Integrated Medical Association is the largest organization representing institutionally qualified ISM graduates who have undergone a conjoint study of Ayurveda/ Unani and Allopathic systems of medicine from the institutions recognized by CCIM (Central Council of Indian Medicine). Integrated system of medicine means a conjoint study, training and practice in indigenous medicine and modern medicine.

NIMA was established in Delhi on 13th April 1948 to achieve the honour, dignity and to uphold the interests of integrated Medical practitioners and to promote integrated Medical education and practices. NIMA has been working tirelessly to protect the rights of ISM graduates since its inception.

The ISM graduates are the backbone of the Country’s health. It has been advocated by UNICEF and WHO to have the services of this long chain of Integrated Doctors practicing throughout the country in rural and urban areas for solving the health problems of this large continent. NIMA has always been actively participating in National Health Programs i.e Pulse Polio Program, against female foeticide, prevention of blindness, eradication of tuberculosis under RNTCP and educating General public against drug addiction.

With an en-compassing vision NIMA has set its own pace for growth and progress, which could set it, scale more pristine heights in future.
