The Academy of Medicine of Cleveland & Northern Ohio (AMCNO) is the region’s professional Medical Association. We are a non-profit, 501 (c) 6 professional organization representing Northern Ohio's medical community. The mission of the AMCNO is to support physicians in being strong advocates for all patients and promotes the practice of the highest quality of medicine. 

Historically, the AMCNO is the oldest professional organization in the State of Ohio originally formed as the Nineteenth District of Ohio in 1824. Our bylaws allow the AMCNO to accept physician members, associate members, group members, resident members, medical student members and other categories from all of the contiguous counties in Northern Ohio.

With a membership of over 6,000 physicians the AMCNO is one of the largest regional medical associations in the country and our membership volume strengthens our ability to advocate on behalf of the physicians in Northern Ohio. We strive to be the voice of physicians in Northern Ohio, and are proud to be an organization with a rich history of working on behalf of physicians and the patients they serve for over 199 years.
