The Council on Scientific Affairs was formed by the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1976. The purpose fo the Council is two-fold: to act as a resource for professionals within the medical community seeking accurate, unbiased, and up-to-date information on medical technology, and to facilitate communication between the professional medical community and the general public.
The council has subsequently expanded to work with a number of professional organizations including, but not limited to, the American Dental Association and the College of American Pathologists.
