The South Jersey Catholic Medical Association of the Diocese of Camden was chartered in the summer of 2003. In the summer of 2018 the organization attained Guild status and continues with the support of The Most Reverend Dennis J. Sullivan, D.D., Bishop of Camden. It is currently an autonomous chapter, but it shares the goals of the National Catholic Medical Association which is headquartered in Philadelphia.

It does this by offering opportunities for prayer and for education.
