MFC is a loosely knit group of friends from various backgrounds, medical and non-medical, often differing in their ways of thinking and in their modes of action. But the understanding that our present health service as well as the system of medical education is lopsided and is in the interest of a privileged few prevails as a common conviction.

Those members who have been consistently active in mfc and are prepared to give time and energy for its organisational growth have constituted the so called 'core-group'. The 'core-group' consisting of twenty to thirty friends at any given time is informal and newcomers are encouraged to join it.

MFC convenor chosen from among the members serves in rotation for a term of two years, with support from an Executive Committee.
