Federal Advocacy

The AMA advocates for America's physicians before Congress and the Administration in the Nation’s capital. To assure that medicine has a cohesive voice in Washington and in order to achieve its legislative goals, the AMA often works with members of the house of medicine and other health organizations to develop positions, messages, and strategies on issues of shared concern.

Learn about the AMA's advocacy efforts with Congress and the Administration, and about the AMA’s instrumental role in securing regulatory improvements and significant legislative victories at the federal and state levels.
