Academic Physicians Section (APS) policymaking


Members of the Academic Physicians Section (APS) have a unique opportunity to shape AMA policy and advocate for medical education and related topics of interest.

Your Powerful Ally

The AMA helps physicians build a better future for medicine, advocating in the courts and on the Hill to remove obstacles to patient care and confront today’s greatest health crises.

APS members may submit resolutions for consideration at biannual meetings of the APS (June and November). Resolutions for consideration at the 2024 APS Annual Meeting must be submitted to [email protected] by April 8.

APS members are invited to comment on policy proposals in advance of each APS business meeting via the online member forum. Authors are encouraged to comment on their own resolutions if they believe doing so would be informative to other reviewers.
