About YPS Assembly Meetings

The AMA-YPS Assembly meets twice yearly (typically June and November) prior to the AMA House of Delegates meeting. The Assembly includes official delegates from state medical societies, national medical specialty societies, and the Military branches. Other young physicians are also welcome to attend the meeting as guests. All participants must be under the age of 40 or are within the first 8 years of professional practice after residency and fellowship training programs.

  • Capability of creating AMA policy or initiating AMA action
  • Network with other physicians at the same point in their practices or careers

  • Run for elected Governing Council office
  • Gain leadership experience by serving on Assembly committees
