AMA-member academic physicians* are invited to participate in the AMA-APS. Are you an AMA member? If so, thank you! If not, join or renew your membership now.
You can join the AMA-APS in one of three ways:
- Appointment by the dean of any United States medical school with an educational program as defined in AMA Bylaw 18.104.22.168.b. (see below), to represent undergraduate, graduate or continuing medical education at the institution. To join the APS through this route, please contact the dean of your institution.
- Self-designation as an academic physician, as defined in AMA Bylaws (see below). To join the AMA-APS through this route, submit a copy of your faculty appointment letter to Fred Lenhoff.
- Self-nomination as a physician who does not hold a medical school faculty appointment, but has an active role in student (undergraduate), resident/fellow (graduate), and/or faculty (continuing) medical education or serves in a clinical/research capacity with an academic medical center, community hospital, or other health care setting. To join the AMA-APS through this route, email Fred Lenhoff.
* As defined in the glossary of terms in the AMA Bylaws, an academic physician is “an individual who possesses the United States degree of doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO), or a recognized international equivalent, and who holds a faculty appointment of any type at a United States medical school with an educational program as defined in Bylaw 1.1.1.”
Bylaw 22.214.171.124.b. further defines such educational programs as “provided by a college of medicine or osteopathic medicine accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education or the American Osteopathic Association leading to the MD or DO degree.”
