Register for AMAs 2013 National Advocacy Conference

Join your colleagues in the nation's capital to advance key issues in medicine during the AMA's annual National Advocacy Conference, Feb. 11–13 at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, D.C.

Participating in the conference empowers physicians to be powerful advocates for their patients and the profession. At the conference, you'll hear from political insiders, industry experts and members of Congress on health system reform refinement and implementation, and take part in discussions that will shape the AMA's advocacy efforts. AMA International Medical Graduates Section members are encouraged to attend.

This year's featured speaker is Chuck Todd, political director and chief White House correspondent for NBC News and host of the Daily Rundown on MSNBC. The master of ceremonies for the Dr. Nathan Davis Awards will be Terry Moran, co-anchor of ABC News' Nightline.

Employed physicians: Look to the AMA for advice

AMA member physicians in contractual relationships with hospitals, health systems and other similar entities can receive personal assistance from the AMA. While the AMA cannot provide legal opinions or representation, it is dedicated to answering questions and providing advice on such topics as contracting, credentialing, peer review, due process and medical staff governance.

AMA members may take advantage of this valuable resource in either of two ways:

  • Complete a brief online form, and an AMA expert on physician-hospital/health system relations will contact you to discuss your questions or concerns.
  • Contact AMA Member Relations via email or at (800) 262-3211 to arrange a time to discuss your questions or concerns with an AMA expert on physician-hospital/health system relations.

This offer is a benefit of AMA membership. If you're not a member, join today.
