About KMA

Established in 1851, the Kentucky Medical Association is a professional organization for physicians throughout the Commonwealth. The KMA works on behalf of physicians and the patients they serve to ensure the delivery of quality, affordable healthcare.

Members of the KMA share a mission of commitment to the profession and service to the citizens of this Commonwealth that extends across rural and urban areas. From solo practitioners to academicians to large, multi-specialty groups, KMA is the ONLY state association representing every specialty and type of medical practice in Kentucky.

The KMA House of Delegates, the association’s legislative body, meets during the KMA Annual Meeting, where it sets the policy and direction of the Association. The KMA Board of Trustees is the executive body of the Association and exercises power of the House between meetings of the House.

The Kentucky Medical Association works in partnership with many county medical societies. Membership in the KMA and your county medical society are unified. Below are links to some of the societies. Contact KMA if you would like to list your county medical society.
