How to join
Membership of the MJA confers a wide range of benefits including opportunities for networking, training and career development as well as access to useful resources and updates on work opportunities.
Once you are a member, there is no charge to enter the prestigious MJA Awards — which celebrate excellence in medical and health journalism.
Becoming a member also means there is no charge to attend the awards and most other MJA events and get-togethers. Recent meetings have covered a workshop on understanding studies and how to turn statistics into stories, speed-dating style advice on career development and a tour of the gardens of the Royal College of Physicians. A number of external organisations have also staged knowledge-building meetings exclusively for MJA members. And the hotly contested Christmas Quiz is a highlight of the Association’s social calendar.
In our members-only forums you will find information on work opportunities, fair rates, special offers and many other benefits. You can also ask for advice on anything from tax to tech’. There are also tops tips for newcomers to the industry, and students hoping to break in. We also provide a free photo-ID card confirming membership. (A small charge is payable for renewals)
