AMA advocacy drives action & results

The AMA stands up for physicians and patients.

Physician's advocacy 

At the state level, the AMA shapes the policy of influential national policymaking organizations, partners with outside experts and stakeholder groups and influences the enactment and/or defeat of state legislation and regulations.

Advocacy Resource Center (ARC)

The American Medical Association Advocacy Resource Center is a tireless advocate for physicians and their patients. We roll up our sleeves—providing cutting edge strategies, expert counseling on best practices and turn-key resources and tools—to help state lawmakers respond to the rapidly evolving health care system. In coordination with state and national medical specialty societies, our work has resulted in the enactment and/or defeat of hundreds of proposed state laws and regulations.
