Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly
The National Medical Association’s Scientific Assembly is acclaimed as the nation’s foremost forum on medical science and African American health. Each year, more than 5,000 African American physicians and other health professionals from across the country convene to participate in the scholarly exchange of medical advances and to develop health policy agenda for the coming year.
Through NMA’s 25 Scientific Specialty Sections, the NMA Convention and Scientific Assembly attracts the broadest spectrum of African American physicians, academicians and scientists in the country. The scientific program opens on a Saturday with special postgraduate courses and workshops, and continues through the following Wednesday with 25 concurrent Scientific Specialty sections ranging from Aerospace and Military Medicine to Women’s Health.
Annual Regional Meetings
The organizational structure of the NMA provides an established national network of affiliated community-based organizations with a powerful reach within African American communities across the nation. The NMA has 33 state and 98 local affiliated medical societies across the nation. The state and local societies are segmented into six geographic NMA regions. Each of the six regions holds an annual meeting in the spring.
