About SMA

Who We Are

The Saskatchewan Medical Association is a voluntary professional association for physicians in Saskatchewan, where over 90 per cent of physicians are members. The SMA also represents the vast majority of medical students and residents training in Saskatchewan.

We represent the collective view of the medical profession in Saskatchewan, and negotiate for and on behalf of fee-for-service, salaried and alternate payment physicians.
