Interested in learning medical librarianship from a different cultural perspective, either through first-hand experience or through interaction with a visiting librarian from another country? If so, the MLA/ICS International Job Exchange program is for you! This program is administered by the MLA International Cooperation Section (ICS) in collaboration with international medical library associations that have a bilateral agreement with the MLA.
In May 2010, the MLA Board approved a motion allowing the ICS to establish a job exchange program with the Korean Medical Library Association. In the fall of 2013, the scope of the program was expanded to allow for partnering with any medical library associations that have a bilateral agreement with the MLA.
The program exists to enable medical librarians and their institutions to provide the best information and services possible to medical professionals and health consumers globally. By facilitating a job exchange, MLA hopes to foster international cooperation, communications, awareness, exchange of ideas, and professional excellence.
