AMA Code of Conduct and anti-harassment policy
The AMA has a robust Code of Conduct to ensure there is professional and ethical behavior associated with all AMA activities and platforms. Participants should declare conflicts of interest and conduct themselves in a manner that is attune to the highest professional ideals.
Anti-Harassment Policy H-140.837 sets forth our AMA’s policy of zero tolerance for any type of harassing conduct by physicians and others attending AMA meetings or functions, and defines those behaviors that are prohibited. The policy also provides multiple reporting options available to both the targets of any harassment and witnesses to prohibited conduct, including an option to register complaints confidentially to an external vendor online or via a toll-free hotline at 1-800-398-1496.
Any type of harassment of employees or applicants for employment by managers, supervisors, co-workers, other employees, or agents of AMA or non-employees (including vendors, customers or members) in the workplace is prohibited conduct and is not tolerated. The AMA is committed to a zero-tolerance environment for unlawful conduct at all locations where AMA employees are conducting AMA business. Register complaints confidentially to an external vendor online or via a toll-free hotline at 1-800-398-1496.
