Become a leader of the AMA Senior Physicians Section

Nominations are open for two officers-at-large positions. If you are interested in putting your experience to work, you are strongly encouraged to submit a nomination form.


All AMA physicians 65 years of age and older are automatically members of the AMA Senior Physicians Section and are eligible for a leadership position, regardless of whether they work full time, part time or are retired.

Positions available

Nominations will be accepted for the following positions with terms that commence in June 2015:


  • Two positions—two-year terms (expiring June 2017)


In addition to being responsible for directing the programs and activities of the section, the AMA-SPS Governing Council members' involvement includes meeting at the AMA House of Delegates Annual and Interim meetings (three days), and one additional AMA-SPS Governing Council meeting (two days) throughout the year, along with various conference calls and regular email communication.

The duties of the Officer at-large position are to represent the interests of the SPS as directed by the GC and execute assigned responsibilities as determined by the Chair of the GC.


An online election will take place in Spring 2015. An electronic ballot will be administered.  Only current AMA members with a valid email address on file in the AMA's system will be sent an email.
