AMDAANA was founded on October 27, 1979 with two major objectives:
- To develop camaraderie and networking amongst alumni of Government Medical and Dental Colleges, Amritsar, Punjab India, residing in North America.
- To enrich education, and through education, patient care at our almamater.
All alumni of these colleges residing in North America are potential members. There is a mailing list of over 800 with over 250 life members.
AMDAANA has initiated a concerted effort to help its alma maters since the year 2003. A task force named AMDAANA Task Force for liaison with Government Medical and Dental Colleges, Amritsar India (AMDAANA TF II) has been formed to develop this initiative. It has been named AMDAANA Amritsar Project with a primary mission to enhance education and patient care at these institutions.
Besides AMDAANA in USA, UK has an alumni association named ADA, many cities like Delhi and Chandigarh have an alumni association named AMCOL. There are plans to develop a worldwide GMCA alumni network.
