Ada County Medical Society was founded in 1960 and since then, our membership has grown to over 2300 physicians, PAs, NPs, residents and medical students representing 60% of the Idaho Medical Association’s membership. ACMS is a strong collaborator, organizer, and voice for physicians in Idaho's capital city.
We have a robust offering of programs and events during the year to continue learning throughout your career, connect with colleagues, and develop leadership skills. Many of these are intentionally family friendly to promote a healthy work-life balance. Membership also provides you with a free listing in and a copy of our ever-popular photo directory and medical community resource guide.
Conjoined with your Idaho Medical Association membership, being a part of ACMS provides you with a local place to get involved in the House of Medicine.
