"CALTCM is an exemplar for what an AMDA state organization should be. It not only provides excellent education and up-to-date information to its members. CALTCM has taken the lead in building the capacity of  interdisciplinary teams to carry out quality improvement projects, and engaging multiple stakeholders, including other health professional organizations and state and federal agencies in order to improve the quality, effectiveness, and value of post-acute and long-term care services in the state of California."

I have been proud to be a member of CALTCM since the mid 90's. There is no other organization in California that brings together administrative and clinical leadership to improve long term care medicine as does CALTCM. CALTCM serves as an incredible source for state of the art education, policy updates, and the ability to network with clinicians and administrators across California. Most of all, it is my California LTC "family".
