Honoring the doctors of America, U.S. #949 pictures a reproduction of Sir Luke Fildes’ painting, “The Doctor.” 
 
The American Medical Association
 
Born in a log cabin in Chenango County, New York, Nathan Smith Davis (1817-1904) had just six months of higher education before beginning his medical apprenticeship in 1834. After graduating three years later, he worked in general practices in Vienna, and Binghamton, New York. One of Davis’ major goals was to improve the quality and length of medical education in America. After being elected to the New York Medical Society in 1844, he created a resolution that suggested creating a national medical association to “elevate… the standard of medical education in the United States.” Although he wasn’t the first to have this idea, he was the first to find success.
 
The organization’s first meeting was held in New York City on May 5, 1846, with the members agreeing that a national group was necessary to set standards for education and a medical code of ethics. They met for the first time as the American Medical Association in 1848 in Baltimore, Maryland. Just 30 at the time of the organization’s founding, Davis was a central figure in AMA for the rest of his career.
