Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) policymaking


Members of the Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) have a unique opportunity to shape AMA policy and action on organized medicine.

New to the policymaking process? Access the education module, How AMA Policy is Made, to learn how OMSS members influence the AMA’s policymaking efforts.

OMSS members may submit resolutions for consideration at biannual meetings of the OMSS Assembly (June and November). OMSS resolutions adopted by the House of Delegates become AMA policy.

Please submit resolutions by Oct. 1, 2023, to Jason Ranville at [email protected].

Consider these guidelines when writing a resolution:

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