EVENT

Image of 2019 Interim Meeting dates for the HOD and groups (sections).

The AMA groups (sections) are holding their interim meetings Nov. 14-16 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California.

Meetings of the AMA groups (sections) are usually held on Friday and Saturday immediately preceding the HOD’s opening session at both Annual and Interim meetings.

The 10 AMA groups (sections) were created to provide for more active involvement in the AMA by various segments of the physician and medical student population who were not otherwise well represented in the HOD in a focused manner. These include:

  • Academic Physicians Section (APS)
  • Integrated Physician Practice Section (IPPS)
  • International Medical Graduates (IMG)
  • Medical Student Section (MSS)
  • Minority Affairs Section (MAS)
  • Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS)
  • Resident and Fellows Section (RFS)
  • Senior Physicians Section (SPS)
  • Women Physicians Section (WPS)
  • Young Physicians Section (YPS) 

The Advisory Committee on LGBTQ Issues is an AMA special group.

Meeting registration

Registration for the groups (sections) will be posted once it becomes available.
