International Medical Graduates Section (IMGS) leadership opportunities


The next IMGS Governing Council election will occur in April 2024.  If you have questions or need additional information, contact the IMGS at [email protected].

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.

The governing council is responsible for directing the programs and activities of the section. Members' involvement includes attending the Annual Meeting of the House of Delegates in June and Interim Meeting of the House of Delegates in November. Governing council members are also required to participate in periodic teleconferences and committees.

You must be an AMA member to run in the IMGS Governing Council election. 

Questions may be directed to [email protected].

The IMGS Governing Council will consider candidate requests for endorsement for the AMA Board of Trustees, councils and other AMA Boards who have been nominated by an organization represented in the AMA House of Delegates.

Candidates must submit a formal request for IMGS endorsement, along with their curriculum vitae, letter of nomination from their sponsoring organization and questionnaire on current IMG issues. You may also submit a photo, but it is not mandatory.

Candidates endorsed through this process may subsequently include the IMGS endorsement on brochures and other election-related promotional materials.

Submit your application for endorsement (DOC, members only) by Oct. 15. IMGS staff will contact the candidates for an interview after application submission. For questions contact IMGS at [email protected]

AMA members who are interested in other leadership roles in medicine may apply for Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Residency Review Committees and other positions.

Vacancy notices are posted annually. If you are interested in a position and meet the qualifications stated in the position description provided, you may apply for nomination by completing and submitting the required documentation by the application deadline.

Please note that, while the AMA Board of Trustees makes the nominations, it is the requesting organization that makes the final appointment.

Questions about the nominations process or vacancies may be directed to Mary Grandau at [email protected].
