CMA grows by four percent in 2012

February 22, 2013

After experiencing relatively flat membership for the past nine years, the California Medical Association (CMA) has experienced a growth spurt in the past year. The increase in membership is due to outreach to medical groups and more targeted recruitment and retention activities. The association membership grew by over 4 percent in 2012 to 37,222. CMA estimates that there are between 60,000 and 70,000 practicing physicians in the state.


CMA members are based mainly in urban areas (85 percent). Very large group practice physicians now make up the largest segment of membership (33 percent), followed by solo and small group (28 percent), medium group (17 percent) and large group (9 percent). Hospital-based physicians are approximately 4 percent of the membership.
