July 22, 2022: Advocacy Update other news


For AMA members, their spouses, medical students and residents and state medical association staff who want to become more involved in the campaigning process, the 2022 AMPAC Campaign School will be taking place in person, Sept. 29–Oct. 2 at the AMA offices in Washington, D.C.

Running an effective campaign can be the difference between winning and losing a race. That’s why the Campaign School is designed to give participants the skills and strategic approach needed out on the campaign trail. AMPAC’s team of political experts will teach participants everything they need to know to run a successful campaign.

During the two-and-a-half day in-person portion of the program, under the direction of political experts, participants will be broken into campaign staff teams to run a simulated congressional campaign using what they’ve learned during group sessions on strategy, vote targeting, social media, advertising and more.    

Registration for the 2022 Campaign School is now open. Space is limited and the deadline to register is Sept. 4 (or sooner if maximum capacity is reached).

On this episode of the AMA Thriving in Private Practice podcast, AMA prior authorization experts Heather McComas and Emily Carroll discuss what private practice physicians need to know about recent changes in prior authorization, including regulations for doctors such as the “gold carding” process in Texas and how the AMA is supporting it.
