Who We Are
Representing over 1,000 physicians, the Greater Albuquerque Medical Association is the premier professional membership organization open to those licensed physicians (MD or DO), residents, and interns living or working in the greater Albuquerque area. We represent physicians in every specialty of medicine.
GAMA is a component society of the New Mexico Medical Society. GAMA has a strong professional relationship with NMMS, specialty societies and other medical professional organizations. Our function as a grassroots professional organization is to focus on the interests of physicians and their patients, working to promote the general health of the community.
The Bernalillo County Medical Society, with fifteen members, was established in the winter of 1893-94 as the first component society of the New Mexico Territorial Medical Society. In 1970 the County Society became known as the Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Medical Association and boasted 396 members. In response to the expansion of the area served by the Association beyond just Bernalillo County, the name of the organization was again changed in 1985 to the Greater Albuquerque Medical Association.
