Help us improve future meetings

Meeting attendees will receive a meeting evaluation survey by email approximately one day after the conclusion of the meeting. Please be sure to complete this survey, as your responses will help us improve future meetings.

If you do not receive the survey, or if you would like to share additional comments, please contact the OMSS at omss@ama-assn.org.

Become an OMSS representative

Although all AMA members are invited to attend the OMSS meeting, only certified OMSS representatives are permitted to fully participate in the meeting (e.g., submit resolutions, make motions, vote).

OMSS representatives play a key role in the functioning of the Section. In addition to representing the interests and concerns of their medical staffs at biannual OMSS meetings, OMSS representatives serve as a two-way conduit for the transfer of vital information between the OMSS and medical staffs across the country. We hope that you will consider fully participating in the activities of the Section by becoming an OMSS representative today!

Contact the OMSS with any questions about becoming an OMSS representative.
