Get Involved in Young Physicians Section Policymaking

The AMA and its members play a crucial role in shaping health policy at all levels. The YPS encourages young physicians to get involved in different parts of the policymaking process.

The YPS considers resolutions in its Annual and Interim Assembly meetings. The resolution deadline for each Annual Assembly Meeting of the YPS is April 30 and the resolution deadline for each Interim Assembly Meeting is Sept. 30. Resolutions can be submitted via email to [email protected].
