Support for Your Profession
The AMA impacts the work of all physicians, residents, fellows and medical students in the U.S. AMA advocacy on behalf of physicians has led to meaningful legislative progress and significant courtroom victories on the issues physicians care about.
Fighting for physician- and patient-friendly laws at the state level, working to enact viable alternative payment models, taking a stand against over-regulation or providing legal support to physicians: we’re making progress through the involvement of physicians like you.
