Ada County Medical Society was founded in 1960 and since then, our membership has grown to over 2700 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.
