About AMDA:

AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine is dedicated to excellence in patient care and provides education, advocacy, information and professional development to promote the delivery of quality post-acute and long-term care medicine.

AMDA is a democratic organization governed by a Board of Directors that is elected by a House of Delegates, with delegates from 43 state chapters. In 1992, AMDA joined the House of Delegates of both the American Medical Association and the American Society of Internal Medicine and was recognized as a specialty society of these organizations.

Although the association's name reveals its origins, the reality is that AMDA has always served the interests of both medical directors and attending physicians. Because the vast majority of medical directors also serve as attending physicians, their issues have been inextricably woven into all of the association's activities.
