The Association for Medical Education and Research in Substance Abuse (AMERSA) was founded in 1976 by members of the Career Teachers Program, a multidisciplinary health professional faculty development program supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. AMERSA has since grown to over 300 members representing physicians of several specialties (MD and DO), nurses, social workers, psychologists, pharmacologists, dentists, and other professionals. AMERSA members have been responsible for many important advances in substance abuse education, research, clinical service, and prevention. They have developed, implemented, and evaluated state-of-the-art curricula, educational programs, and faculty development programs.
