AMA Advocacy in Action


The AMA is your powerful ally in patient care as an influential voice at the state and federal level that informs, guides and generates support for policies that advance meaningful health care initiatives. Learn from Advocacy in Action about what’s at stake and what the AMA is doing to address the concerns most relevant to patients and physicians.

In addition to these advocacy priorities, the AMA is actively working for America’s physicians on a broad range of issues. To learn more, see the full breadth of the AMA’s advocacy efforts.

Fighting scope creep

Patients deserve care led by physicians—the most highly educated, trained and skilled health care professionals. That’s why the AMA vigorously defends the practice of medicine against scope-of-practice expansions that threaten patient safety.

The AMA works to generate support for policies critical to the nation’s health care system—and we can’t do it without your help. Learn more about ways to get involved with AMA advocacy.
