AMA Policy on Medical Staff Issues
The AMA House of Delegates has adopted substantial policy, often in response to OMSS-sponsored resolutions, in the form of policy positions and directives to take action addressing a range of issues relevant to the organized medical staff.
AMA policy on the medical staff is largely summarized by the AMA's "Principles for Strengthening the Physician-Hospital Relationship." Other relevant policy can be found via the links below:
