Media Announcement: Statement on IMA President's Remark

The National Academy of Psychology (NAoP) takes strong exception to Indian Medical Association President Dr Rajan Sharma's statement that "IMA welcomes formation of paramedical council/ Allied health professionals council to regulate standards of education of paramedical courses and for maintenance of registry for qualified paramedical personal. But IMA is definitely against allowing paramedical personals like… Clinical psychologist, speech therapists etc. being given independent authority to practice their own area without doctor's supervision” (sic).
