American Medical Association

 An 1845 resolution to the New York Medical Association by Dr. Nathan S. Davis, calling for a national medical convention, led to the establishment of the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1847. Scientific advancement, standards for medical education, launching a program of medical ethics, improved public health — these were the goals of the AMA.  Members of the American Medical Association have access to the AMA Archives as one of the many benefits of AMA membership. The Archives preserve documents, photographs, films, books, memorabilia and artifacts. Members have access to more than 90 historical collections for research, and pay no use fees and no fees to photocopy small numbers of archival materials.  

In 1950, the AMA Board of Trustees chartered the American Medical Education Foundation (AMEF) as a 501(c)(3) organization to receive and distribute funds for medical education. Medical schools were running high annual deficits and turning away students with great potential because the cost of education was so high and there was a lack of resources to support them.

Several years later a separate 501(c)(3) was created – the American Medical Research Foundation (AMRF) – to receive funds from donors to finance beneficial medical research involving costs which could not be solely supported by the AMA itself. Eventually these 2 separate foundations were combined into the AMA-ERF, serving the organization as such for more than 35 years.
