Dade County Medical Association
We take care of you . . . . so you can take care of your patients!
The Dade County Medical Association (DCMA) is the only countywide organization that effectively represents both allopathic and osteopathic physicians in every medical specialty. The DCMA serves as the major advocate for the medical profession in Miami-Dade County. Over the years, the DCMA has been on the forefront of issues that affect the availability of high quality, affordable health care for the Miami-Dade County community. Working closely with the Florida Medical Association at the state level, and the American Medical Association at the national level, DCMA continues to push for legislative and regulatory solutions to the many challenges facing the health care system and will continue to fight against any measures that would decrease access to quality health care and harm the citizens of Miami-Dade County.
Whatever the issue, DCMA will work tirelessly to ensure that the interests of our physician members, and most importantly, the interests of our patients are fully recognized and reflected in all health care policies adopted by the State of Florida.
