Who We Are
The Medical Association of the State of Alabama is the professional association for around 7,000 physicians of all specialties throughout Alabama. The Association exists to serve, lead and unite physicians in promoting the highest quality of health care for the people of Alabama through advocacy, information and education.
Founded more than 140 years ago, the Medical Association’s strategic agenda remains rooted in its historic commitment to the medical profession, physicians and the patients they serve.
The Medical Association is one of a very few truly democratic organizations in the State of Alabama. The membership has vital input into the workings of the association through its elected College of Counsellors and House of Delegates. This body not only elects the Board of Censors, but also votes on policy resolutions that guide the board and staff in issues of importance to physicians.
Unified by its county medical societies, physicians must be a member of their local county society in order to be a member of the state association. The Medical Association works closely with the American Medical Association and many specialty medical societies at the state and national levels on a variety of issues.
