Provide your comments on IMG Section resolutions April 15-19

AMA International Medical Graduates (IMG) Section members may provide comments on the resolutions being considered for the 16th Annual IMG Section Business Meetings April 15–19. Final ratification of the resolutions is scheduled for April 23–30. AMA-IMG Section members will receive a SurveyMonkey invitation requesting them to provide their testimony during both periods.

Your comments are important to formulate policy for the AMA-IMG Section. Send your questions to the AMA-IMG Section mailbox.
