The Federation Medical Association (or FMA or UFPMA) was an organization of Federation physicians. They were a civilian counterpart to Starfleet Medical.

Lieutenant Gary Mitchell once joked, after discovering Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in agreement with him on a tactical plan, that he'd received "the UFPMA Seal of Approval". (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

In 2380, following a visit to New Paris, Federation President Nanietta Bacco spoke to the head of the FMA about a new treatment for Irumodic Syndrome developed by the New Parisians. Prior to this, these researchers had been unable to get the attention of anyone at the FMA. (ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

The organization is referred to only by acronym in both novels; the full name is assumed, based on context and the similarity to the American Medical Association (AMA). It is unclear whether the Federation Medical Association is a governmental agency or an independent one.
