Membership and Education
Members of the Kentucky Medical Association share a mission of commitment to the profession and service to the people 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 Legal Handbook for Kentucky Physicians includes information about Kentucky law relevant to physician provision of medical care. Members are advised to consult an attorney knowledgeable in health care law for answers to specific questions.
