The Foundation for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, a 501(c)(3), was officially chartered and incorporated on January 17, 1996, when the members and board of directors of AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine realized the profound need to further research and its translation into practice in long-term care.

- addressing the workforce shortage in post-acute/long-term care (PA/LTC) medicine;
- encouraging research in PA/LTC medicine;
- recognizing the outstanding achievements of our members and their innovative quality improvement programs;
- enhancing the global awareness and best practices in PA/LTC medicine; and
- educating the public about PA/LTC medicine.
The Foundation for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine is supported by contributions from AMDA-The Society for Post-Acute & Long-Term Care Medicine members, the general public, the private sector, foundations and the government.
