Interim Meeting 2013
Senior physician meetings focus on “staying young,” licensure issues
At the second assembly meeting of the AMA Senior Physicians Section (SPG) AMA Trustee Joseph P. Annis, MD, delivered the keynote presentation entitled, "Aging for docs—how to stay young, sharp and relevant despite the calendar: The new AMA Senior Physicians Section."
The assembly provides a forum for members 65 years of age and older to discuss AMA-SPS business and future activities, as well as AMA House of Delegates business items.
The Nov. 16 session covered such topics as the possibility that senior physicians may face increased requirements to maintain licensure and how the AMA-SPS can help drive an evidence-based system that does not discriminate on the basis of age.
In addition, Richert (Rich) E. Quinn, Jr., MD, AMA-SPS chairman, outlined the new online elections for the section’s governing council, which will open in January 2014.
