About the Oregon Medical Association
The Oregon Medical Association (OMA) is the state’s largest professional society engaging in advocacy, policy, community-building, and networking opportunities for Oregon’s physicians, medical students, physician assistants, and physician assistant students. In the state capitol of Salem and in Washington, DC, the OMA’s 8000+ members speak with one voice as they advocate for policies that improve access to quality patient care and reduce administrative burdens on medical professionals.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, the OMA is a 501(c)6 organization governed by the 60+ members of its Board of Trustees. Association members meet annually at the OMA Annual Conference. The association was first founded in 1874 as the Oregon State Medical Society, with Dr. Alfred C. Kinney elected as president.
