PMA Scholarships Celebration Series 2021
Updates / Events , 23 Nov 21
In light of the current circumstances surrounding the Delta outbreak, the Pasifika Medical Association (PMA) will unfortunately be deferring its annual PMA Cocktail Scholarship Evening to a time in February 2022.

The evening event traditionally celebrates the new recipients of PMA scholarships and acknowledges the journey of those who have gone before, who have paved a way forward for the next generation of Pacific health professionals.

However, we are still dedicated to the celebration and acknowledgement of our new PMA Scholarship cohort, so we will be releasing a celebration series, starting this week, across our social media platforms to highlight and recognize our winners.
