This Day In Founding Fathers History – 7 May 2013

American Medical Association - first meetingOn this day in 1847, 258 delegates from 28 states attended a national medical convention at the hall of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. They approved a resolution to establish the American Medical Association, with Dr. Nathaniel Chapman elected its first president. The goals of the association were “scientific advancement, standards for medical education, launching a program of medical ethics, and improved public health.” At this founding meeting, the delegates “adopted the first code of medical ethics, and established the first nationwide standards for preliminary medical education and the degree of MD.” 1
