Who We Are
The Dominican Medical Association, Inc. (DMA) was founded by a group of physicians from the Dominican Republic on April 26, 1997. Our mission continues to be to educate our community about health issues and to assist newly-arrived physicians from abroad to get established in their field by providing them with the tools needed to pass the United States medical boards and then, integrating them into the local medical community through partnerships developed with private and public medical centers.
This year, we celebrate our twenty-first year on disease prevention, education, and counseling to our community and we are proud of our history of serving as consultants to the media and social agencies on public health concerns in our community, as mentors to our newly-arrived colleagues, and as educators at our schools, churches, sports groups, and other community-based organizations.
