Welcome to BMLA membership registration

The British Medical Laser Association is the UK’s leading advocate for the safe operation of lasers and light-based technology in the treatment and diagnosis of human disease. This is achieved through:

  • The promotion of research and development in laser and light-based technology in medicine
  • Establishing standards in the medical application of lasers and light-based technology
  • Promoting collaboration and understanding between clinical and scientific disciplines in the field of laser and light-based technology application

However, this could not be achieved without significant input from a multidisciplinary body of knowledge. The British Medical Laser Association membership includes clinicians and surgeons from a broad range of specialities, nurses and allied health professional, scientists, laser protection advisors and equipment manufacturers.

By joining the BMLA, you will have the opportunity to help continue the development of safer and better ways of applying lasers and light-based technologies in medicine. Basic membership costs £25 and includes:

  • Full voting rights
  • Eligibility to apply for BMLA research and travel awards
  • Discounted fees for the BMLA Annual Conference
  • Access to up-to-date information regarding medical laser/light developments

Full membership costs £75 and includes all of the above plus:

  • Subscription to the official BMLA journal, Lasers in Medical Science, published by Springer.
  • Membership to the European Laser Association
BMLA annual membership runs for twelve months from January to December (half-year pro rata membership available where necessary). Applications received later in the calendar year may be deferred to the beginning of the next membership year.


A Certificate of Membership will be emailed to you once your membership and payment is complete and will be dated from the commencement of the membership. Please ensure that a valid email address is provided on the application form for this purpose. If a hard copy of the certificate is required there is an additional fee of £15 plus a stamped addressed envelope for this. Please contact membership@bmla.co.uk for more information.
